After doing some more research, I found an old thread on this list from
the fall of 2000.

According to some thoughts posted there, the only limitations (from lab
testing) were on the number of ACLs that could possibly be created in the
first place (100). One person mentioned they were running 90 some
rate-limit statements on a single interface with no problem.

If I could get one other person to just confirm for me that they have run
a bunch of rate-limit statements on a single interface (in production), I
would be really appreciative. I'm unfortunately not in a position where I
can labtest this.
