Honestly, I don't remember how we got there, but I'm positive this resulted from
a debate. The idea was:

no specific request:               use soft
specific request <= hard:      use hard
specific request > hard:        admin limit

I haven't looked at its implications for a while, and it seems weird to me that
the server may refuse a legal request in such a drastic way; I'd rather simply
stay with the hard limit if the request exceeds it.
