There is no logical reason for a limit on the number of recepticals
on a circut, nor was it, (last version I checked) in the NEC. The
only general requirement for the number of circuts falls out of the
requirement for 3watts/sqft of available power, and the limit of
20A per circut.
OTOH, there's no such thing as too much available power,
and it's a whole lot cheaper to run circuts all at the same
time than to come back and add another one.
