Yes, that's a better name. When I wrote "fixed" I was thinking in
the domain of fixed-sized hardware queues (i.e. there are always
the same number of memory elements). A "maximum sized" container
may or may not represent those empty elements (with valid bits,
etc.). That's probably a slightly different beast, though.
