It's only an issue because PicoTech chooses to make it one. As Martyn wrote:
The 5MS is an across the board setting so needs to be applicable at faster rates, allow for multiple buffers with minimum re arm time, and support a variety of PC specifications.
In other words, they've set it at a level that accommodates the LOWEST common denominator. At the expense of everything above that level. That is certainly one strategy, although a reasonable argument could be made that by reducing the functionality of more powerful devices, it's one of the worst possible.
As we move forward this limit may be relaxed even further, originally it was 2MS
Therefore, Martyn admits, completely arbitrary restrictions may some day be removed, if and when Pico chooses to do so.
My preference, as an owner of multiple PicoTech devices, would be to restore that control to the user, and remove artificial roadblocks... perhaps along with a warning pop-up that reminds them of potential ramifications. That way would keep Pico off the hook (from complaints), but not tie the hands of knowledgeable users.
