I don't think the GHz makes any sense, consider CPUs with frequency
scaling. If I can scale from 1.6GHz to say 2.6GHz or 2GHz to 4GHz,
what does it mean for hard limit control? Hard limits define control
over existing bandwidth, anything else would be superficial and hard
hard to get right for both developers and users.
