Tickets #1686 and #2423 required the addition of a maxresults argument to the msQueryByPoint() function in order to properly handle WMS GetFeatureInfo's FEATURE_COUNT. A preliminary fix for this was committed in ce02d91 (r7147).
It has then been suggested that we extend the concept of maxresults as follows:
A RFC will be required for this (in 5.2)...

Just for background. RFC 36 implements a limit parameter as part of the [feature ...][/feature] tag although that's well after a query was done.
Personally I favor a layer level parameter that:
There is a MAXFEATURES parameter already at the layer level (used for drawing only) and care must be taken to not confuse users. Perhaps the use can be merged somehow or the parameters could be named explicitly, e.g. MAXDRAWFEATURES and MAXQUERYFEATURES.

Moving to 5.4...

Moving to 6.2, we'll need an RFC to deal with this across the board.
@sdlime any update on this one ? it won't make it for 6.2 no?
Duplicate of #4011 for the most part. Closing.
