I agree with Eric and Scott.

As you describe it, you should set the root device to having a footprint of 48 and the sub-devices to have a footprint of 0.
You don't have to support SLOT_INFO, but I would recommend it. As Eric mentioned, you can use the ACK_OVERFLOW mechanism. This mechanism can be used whenever your response is longer that what you can return in one transfer.
For instance, if your transmit buffer only allows you to have a parameter data length of 50, then you can use it as well. Your device doesn't have to support the largest possible response length, it could split the responses. This is common in devices with very limited memory resources.
