And if other people have control over the resulting containers in that circumstance a wildcard wouldn't be suitable either, unless it is only used for HTTPS (and the local LAN/VLAN can be trusted) in which case you can put a proxy in front of the containers to handle it to avoid each container needing a copy of the private key.

I can see why limits are in place though, it protects them from abuse by badly written integration code and actions that are less accidental. Perhaps they'll lift the the limits a bit as the service grows and stabilises. Or introduce a cheap-but-not-free service for people requiring something beyond the standard submission rate limits.
