Even though they're temporary, many containers can together use a
significant amount of transient uncharged memory. We've seen machines
with 100s of MiBs in names_cache.

Yes, there is a system limit of maximum number of open files. However
this limit is shared between different users on the system and one
user can hog this resource. To cater that, we set the maximum limit
very high and let the memory limit of each user limit the number of
files they can open.
