[tei-council] nym/@parts

In reading through things (and correcting non-schema things 
relating to an old bug assigned to me) I happened to notice:


The @parts attribute on <nym> is limited to 1 - 100 occurrences 
of data.pointer.  Although I can't picture a good use case for 
more than 50 myself... there are plenty of places where we allow 
1 - infinity pointers as an attribute value.  Why are we so 
specific that there can't be more than 100 on nym/@part in specific?

I ask this in full knowledge that I have hazy recollection of 
being part of the working group that introduced <nym>, but no 
recollection of the seemingly arbitrary limit in itself.

Just curious,
