Why can't I create a public tournamet with a time control longer than 7 minutes?

I wanted to create a tourney with a somewhat long time control, for example 15+0 or 10+5, but i noticed that i can only create a tourney with a maximum time control of 7 minutes for public, why can't i create a tourney with longer time controls??

Yeh I've asked the question again to get it bumped, but trade secret, you can edit the html to make a 10 minute tournament if you reallllllly want to.

My guess is to prevent tourney creation abuse but I don't know.
