I was looking at the MMS use of this, and one is a sanity check to
make sure we don't add more streams then would be reasonably useless /
probably trash repeat file / exploit code.

It seems to me such checks should be introduced elsewhere also. Is
keeping MAX_STREAMS or a new macro at a reasonably large value (1000
or so) ok for that? Not for size of arrays, we can forbid that in the
doxy, but just as a sanity check.
