Optional Parallel Execution limit

Hi,
I've just seen in the changelog for 5.7 that the limit on Parallel executions has been set to 8 after some requests for it.
Sadly one of our main projects using Katalon uses Parallel remote execution across a number of different machines, I believe more than 8.
Could this limit be set to optional?

Thanks,
Tom

    Yes, I saw that in the release notes and thought it sounded too low/aggressive.

    Agree, sounds not clear. Dear Katalon Team, please provide more details.

    Katalon team should make it clear if the limit is effective only on a single machine (= a single JVM instance) or the limit rules across multiple machines (= multiple JVM instances).

    I am curious about your Distributed Parallel execution mechanism.

    Do you use BrowserStack's parallel test?

    Or do you perform Katalon's Test Suite Collection's Parallel execution distributed on 8 or more machines? ---  though I do not know how to do this.
