The problem here is that mobs (by default) wander around, and if it's a
relatively big zone, with (initially) only a few mobs, you'll have lots
of mobs where they shouldn't be after a few zone resets.
This is assuming you're only checking the room in which they repop for
the max, which is what you seem to be saying.

If you structure your zone file properly it isn't a huge problem anyway,
especially with wandering mobs.

With sentinels it would be handy, but I don't personally think it's worth
coding it in just for them.
