You got that right.
The rules allow only one target per stage to have a round count different from the other targets, and I don't think I've ever shot such a stage where it wasn't the first target ("Engage T1 with six rounds while retreating to position two, then engage T2-T5 with two rounds each").

I think the reason for the 10rd limit is that it was the law, nation-wide, in 1996 when IDPA was introduced.
Also, it encourages "practicing" of reloads, which is a worthwhile defensive skill.
If you're not shooting you should be moving. If you're not moving you should be reloading. If you're not shooting, moving, or reloading, you should be taping or picking brass. - Z.C.
