Why is there a limit to DVR device authorization and deauthorization?

What is the rationale behind this arbitrary limit? Why is it something that Verizon feels is necessary to control? How does allowing more authorizations and deauthorizations affect the FiOS network? Does the limit also include authorization transfers?

Also, I'm trying to transfer authorization from one device to another and I receive error 2043. A search yields no information on here nor on Google. I can't delete the authorization through the mobile app nor from my computer. The device I'm trying to transfer authorization to is the same device which has already been authorized. Why it isn't recognized as the same device?

Assumption is that Verizon is trying to control the number of people you are sharing content with.

No idea if it is their own doing or part of the deal with content providers to allow out of home streaming.
