One downside to the count based TP is that an endpoint can't set aside fix size buffer for CID's because it depends on the CID lengths. Especially for constrained devices this could be an issue. A device might handle have 32 bytes set aside for 4 CIDs up to length 8, but it would only be able to handle one CID of length 18.
