You are correct.
"I" believe that there is an "implied" limitation.
If you use the 3va per sf calculation for the home's load, should you not use that sf va per each room?
Question not an answer.
"To my knowledge there is not limitation in the code, or anywhere else which limits the number of receptacles which can be placed on a circuit."
Again correct, in a residential application.
My question is how do you balance the loads?
Again, I think that the code did not want to keep you from adding extra outlets in a room. Not to put "all" outlets on one circuit.
Now as an AHJ can I make you do what I want?
Do I make you do want I want?
Do I use common sense?
Well it depends on to whom you speak. ![icon_twisted.gif](upload://xjO326gspdTNE5QS3UTl0a0Rtvy.gif)
Answer this. If you put all bedrooms one one circuit (assume a five bedroom home) have you meet the workmanship "rule", which I can enforce?
That is why we are given some latitude.
