As Christian has pointed out in private, this limitation hasn’t been lifted yet. I ran into it when I tried to index all the XML files on my hard disk. It worked for my code files yesterday because I switched to a new computer 1 year ago, and the number of code files / namespaces in them has not reached the critical limit yet.

So I made an issue out of it:

Thanks, BaseX team, for lifting this restriction!

This has already proved really useful: I knew that I wrote an XProc step
that conditionally invoked a step whose local name I remembered. The
simple XPath expression
helped me identify the two relevant files.
Since we do a lot of development in XML-syntax languages, an XML
database is really really good for structured searches on these files. I
bet you XQuery devs still use grep to query your code ;)
