Ned, Laura,

Just a thought, based on little thinking and less information:
Are there any plausible circumstances in which a system might
want to encourage rolling up a few MXs but not very many?  If
so, that would turn it into a limit, rather than requiring a
separate announcement keyword.  I'm having trouble imagining
such a case, so, if the answer is "no", don't bother with a
detailed explanation.   However, because I think there is value
in minimizing the number of announcements, the question seems
worth asking.
