A theory I have is that the reason that it was limited to 12 is due to a limitation in a time lords brain. Although vast, it is likely that a time lords brain only has a limited capacity. The regeneration limit might have been set due this.

Based on this theory, I could imagine the following situation: In the future the far The Doctor encounters a companion who meant a great deal to him in the past (such as Susan, Jamie, Sarah Jane Smith, Rose Tyler, Amy Pond), and he has absolutely no memory of him/her. It is not just that the memory is repressed, but it is completely gone due to The Doctor's mind needing more memory space. Due to this, the companion is a complete stranger to him now.
Hmm, but Time Lords can artificially extend the lifespan of each incarnation potentially indefinitely, as Smith’s doctor showed by outliving all his previous incarnations with a little help from the Tardis.

Actually come to think of it we really can’t say how old the Doctor is prior to 11. 9 claims to be 900 YO, but this is already younger than the 7’s stated age of 953. And given the War Doctor was young when we first saw him, several hundred years must have passed given how long it took for 11 to age.
