Keep in mind too that the TDR testing ESTA did as part of qualifying CAT5 cabling years ago shows that there is significant discontinuities caused by each connector, so ultimately this will be a practical limit far before the theoretical driver chip limit.

I proved it in our QC labs at HES many times by connecting (20) 5 foot cables together and you'd get tons of reflections compared to just using a single cable 100 foot cable.
