Predictability here also - unfortunately - could mean exposing details of server resource constraints to clients.  Or other details that might advantage an attacker.  That is because the resource in question is shared.  Though individuals might be given caps on their own usage that are independent of others (the sequence number might cap out at 200, for instance), anything more concrete and actionable might expose information about how much spare capacity the server truly has.
