@rmarx Thank you for the comments. I see several folks argue for having lower bound for SETTINGS_NUM_PLACEHOLDERS; I've updated the PR to say "at least 32".

It is still a SHOULD rather than a MUST, based on the perception that changing it to a MUST just incentivizes the servers to lie about it's capability, which reduces the usefulness of SETTINGS_NUM_PLACEHOLDERS.
