Phoenix doesn't have it set higher. Or, it did, but it was a bug.
Perhaps you meant Fusion. Yes, it's higher for Fusion and MPL. The
reason for 10 and not something higher (yet) is because there is N^2
overloads of expr::operator() on compilers that don't support variadic
templates. And with BLL and Bind and Phoenix, there's a history of
supporting arities up to 10 and no more. I'm balancing keeping it fast
and light(-ish) and making it useful in the real world.
