Re the disk-transfer limit comment, some buses have other limits.
E.g. SCSI commands are transferred async (slow) and becomes a

(E.g if you try attach more distinct spindles to try use more of the
SCSI bus bandwidth, you just run into a wall due to proportionally
more time being spent on async commands).
