15 streams seem very limited. Can this be extended? e.g. 16 bits.

15 streams is enough for 1-4 applications. More, and applications starts
to fight over the same stream id's, leading them to place different age
data in same flash blocks and push us back to square one.

I understand that Samsung multi-stream SSD supports a limited amount of
streams, more advance implementations should provide higher limits.
