Yes.  Keep it simple.  Operations like trim-whitespace and
drop-empty-strings-from-the-result (mentioned in the previous
discussion) are so easy to do outside of regexp-split, why complicate
the semantics?

Limit is arguably more fundamental to the procedure.  Anything else is
pre- or post-processing.
