> Well, Remi had proposed raising the limit. Suppose we offered 7 key-value pairs instead of 5. Would you then complain about having to rewrite your code if you had to add an 8th entry to the map? 

Yes, I would. In fact, the higher you make the limit, the bigger the surprise when I find I cannot extend my code in the natural way by adding one more entry.
