If you are talking about limiting the voltage/current used by the motor, having an adjustable one just means that there is something that people can cheat with... If you make a 'regulation' volt/amperage limiter, people will purchase dozens and weed out the top performers. Or you have to worry about cheater boxes that can be changed at the push of a button or flip of a switch that are housed in 'regulation' cases... The possibilities are endless.
I said it before, this will be a painful process depending on what technology actually becomes the future of the hobby. As of right now, I am happy that 12th made the resurgence that it did, I love my 12th.
