	No, for example this  <zmailer> list has 217 recipients,
	and I know several lists at vger.rutgers.edu which exceed
	2500 recipients.

	The SMTP transport contains official limit of 100 recipients
	per DATA phase, but sending more is just a matter of sending
	the recipients in chunks of 100 recipients + body.

	Likely an EHLO extension mechanism should be registered to
	allow feeding more than 100 recipients per DATA/BDAT..
	In between ZMailer's there is  "X-RCPTLIMIT 10000".
