I completely agree.  Capping the export rate is just a good
"fail-safe" mechanism (as you noted) to help out when the operator 
has misjudged how much data the sampling configuration might generate.
This misjudgment could be due to misconfiguration, or a sudden change
in the proportion of traffic that matches the selection critereon.
