      There is not a prescribed limit in the spec as different devices have
      different limitations. For example, if you want to maximize your support
      traffic, ensure that all waypoint names are at least 4096 characters long,
      are not unique, and use as much of the Unicode space as possible.

      It really is up to the other end (the end that isn't GPX) to know about and
      enforce things like "number of routepoints in a route" or "must be
      uppercase letters and digits only".
