The text we already have in 13.2.4 has the right context:
  To limit receiver state or the size of ACK frames, a receiver MAY
   limit the number of ACK Ranges it sends.  A receiver can do this even
   without receiving acknowledgment of its ACK frames, with the
   knowledge this could cause the sender to unnecessarily retransmit
   some data.
