The way this is worded seems to imply that at most 99 backreferences are
allowed. Is this the intent?

The sentence I'm referring to is:

"The construct \N where N is a
single digit is always recognized as a back-reference; if this is followed by
further digits, these digits are taken to be part of the back-reference if and
only if the resulting number NN is such that the back-reference is preceded by
NN or more opening parentheses"

Is there any reason to impose a limit of 99? Of course, I can't imagine any
real use cases that would need more than 99 backreferences, but why impose an
arbitrary limit in the language itself?
