Why only 10 reference fields?

This thread is spiraling away from the original topic towards an unproductive back-and-forth about whether help was or wasn’t provided. From what I can tell, it looks like the original question (Why only 10 reference fields?) was answered by both @memetican and @webdev:

@marklovin - Since you have a follow-up about how setting up a structure to get around the 10 reference field limitation, I’ve broken one of your initial replies into a separate thread with a title that will hopefully get some attention from other folks in the community who may be able to give more insight.
