MaxValuesPerName ( int ) [0..1]
This value is the maximum number of corresponding name values that can be used per Item Specific when creating, revising, or relisting an item on the specified site. An example of an Item Specific that might have multiple values is 'Features'. A product can have multiple features, hence multiple features can be passed in through multiple ItemSpecifics.NameValueList.Value fields.

Once you know the site threshold, it can also be helpful to know specific Item Specifics in a listing category that can have more than value, such as 'Features'. To retrieve this information, you can call GetCategorySpecifics for a category and check the NameRecommendation.ValidationRules.MaxValues field for each Item Specific in the response.
