Why will the game only let me put seven bots in a private match on XBL but will let me have seventeen bots in local play?

Sending updates for all 17 bots over the net to communicate with other players connected to your private match requires a lot more processing than running 17 bots locally.

Also, isn't the max for most game modes 8v8? How do you even get 9v9 with bots? Ground War? Honestly asking, I haven't paid much attention to the details... been playing standard dom and squads almost exclusively.
