Maximum number of elements in batch APIs that the VASA Provider can support. This value is common to all batch APIs supported by the provider. However, for each specific API, the provider may still throw or return TooMany fault in which a different value of maxBatchSize can be specified. If the value is not specified (zero) or invalid (negative), client will assume there's no common limit for the number of elements that can be handled in all batch APIs.
