Nit: I'm not sure "advised" is necessarily the right thing to say in
general - that's only really true for a caller who cares about
throughput of churning through short-lived mappings more than anything
else, and doesn't take a significant hit overall from splitting up
larger requests. I do think it's good to clarify the exact context of
"optimal" here, but I'd prefer to be objectively clear that it's for
workloads where the up-front mapping overhead dominates.

Thanks,
Robin.
