*Publishers* setting device limit for Kindle

Recently, when looking for total number of pages of a Kindle edition book on Amazon's site, I've noticed on more than a few occasions that the number of pages line has been replaced with the following:

Simultaneous Device Usage: Up to 5 simultaneous devices, per publisher limits

A link to one of many examples (scroll down to Product Details): http://www.amazon.com/The-Canterbury...8043762&sr=1-5

This particular example has multiple copies by various publishers, but that is not always the case.

Now, if Amazon's policy limits a customer to six devices, where does a publisher's limit come in to play and how is it enforced? I suspect the publisher's limitation takes precedent over Amazon, as did the Text-To-Speech issue.

Yet another distortion of Amazon's sales pitch?

(Sorry, I obviously failed my initial search attempt on the subject and now see a short thread addressing this) Moderators please feel free to move/delete.
