I don't care much for this idea, but if that is the working group consensus, this is a fine way to do it.

I will float an idea that might help reduce one potential source of confusion: rename this to active_connection_ids.  The max_* transport parameters all have a similar credit-based design, where this is a count of the number of concurrently active of the identified resource.
