My understanding of these limits are that they are to limit the
configuration files from becoming too large, which makes
changing/processing them somewhat slow.

For SMB shares, you might be able to limit the number of configured shares
by using wildcards in the config (%U). These wildcarded entries counts as
one share.. Don’t know if simimar tricks can be done for NFS..
