I confirm, the current behavior is that an error occurs
if a limit greater than hard is explicitly requested
by the client.  I've found the message thread where the
limits behavior was designed.  Unless amended in later
messages (I didn't follow the whole thread), this is what
we agreed at the time.


Of course, we can amend it now; however, now the "max"
mechanism allows to directly hit the hard limit, if any.

Ciao, Ando.
