If I recall correctly, it's not actually limited to 5 concurrent
connections, but there is a performance limiter that kicks in after
that point to slow it down :-)
But it has something to do with active requests, so I believe you
could have any number of connections, and probably not hit performance
issues unless more than 5 of them were actively trying to do something
at the same time.
