On second thought (after looking through my odd collection of rewrite examples)
I do tend to agree with you, since I'm having a very hard time imagining 
any case where even more than a couple would be useful. So I'm all for 
limiting to 10 (or even 5 for that matter) as long as it will result in an
explanatory message to the error_log (LogLevel debug).
