BFGoodrich: 1 repair

Bridgestone: 1 repair only if 15 psi maintained

Continental: does not recommend

Dunlop: 1 repair

Firestone: 1 repair only if 15 psi maintained

Goodyear: 1 repair

Kumho: 1 repair

Michelin: 1 repair

Pirelli: does not recommend

Yokohama: does not recommend

If you didn't have runflats you would have had something else to compensate would you not (e.g. spare, donut, sealing kit, AAA)?

As someone mentioned, if you did not experience pressure loss, your run flats did not perform any differently than a non-run flat tire.

Just spoke with someone at Americs's Tires and they recently received "permission" from Pirelli to do a one time repair on their run-flats
