Yes, but I've already given a good example of this.  The developer of  
the Drop Down Admin Menu could add the "max" header to his older  
version of the plugin when he realizes that it will not work with  
newer versions.  (Both <2.5 and >2.5 versions are available to  
download.)  Won't help people who already have it, but will help users  
of older versions of WordPress who download the older version.

I'm not _married_ to the hard limits options (and in any case, it  
would be an option between hard/soft), but it does have a certain  

The soft upper limit and the hard lower limit would be useful,  
however. :)
