The limit is a suggestion. It gives a kind of heads up to only expect and be happy with 3 bombers, or 6 12s. Or 2 bombers and two 12s, or... its supposed to prevent situations where a guy ships a case and only gets one bottle back, and feels cheated, and then rants about what a ripoff it was, ruining the whole vibe. Yuk! Plus with a limit of 3, most people can feel up to joining in. Not everyone has a cellar full of awesome variety. And thats OK!
But honestly, the overwhelming majority of homebrewers are crazy generous and very grateful people. Rules are normally not needed. Its about the fun of sharing, and making connections, and learning.
