WebKit currently limits the number of iterations in the loops in the AAA. Gecko
has corresponding patch waiting to land.

For interop, the spec should have normative limits here, and they should be as
low as compat with existing content permits.

I'll suggest specific limits when I've analyzed the data Philip kindly provided
on this topic.
