useless client quota exceeded restriction

What is the point of the client quota exceeded state? I get that it happens after N requests over T time but it’s absolutely pointless unless that idea is to be a hindrance.

It’s actually impossible to predict since we don’t know when the clock in the bulb started in the first place. Since we can connect in music mode and spam all we want there is obviously not a physical issue here. Music mode is really cool and useful, but it’s not appropriate for someone holding the ‘light brighter’ button really is it?

Why is this even here, or more importantly, can we just remove this useless restriction.
