If I recall correctly, that's also real close to the maximum
number of physical connections to the chasis, with all modules
installed. Personally, I've never run anywhere near that number.
I don't think it is useful to have less than 2 members in a vlan.
You would also be surpassing the bandwidth limitations of that
chasis, even if all the connections were 100baseTX.
