The maximum auto-white balance is 7500K. Why not make it higher?

A DNG file in my CC2015.7 allows the slider to go from 2,000 to 50,000k.
What type of file stops at 7500k

"Auto-white balance" will of course vary depending on the colours in the image.

Thanks Robert for the reply. My suggestion is regarding AUTO-white-balance. Like when you click on the auto-white balance button, it only ever goes as high as 7500K. I know I'm free to adjust it up to 50000, but I'm hoping the software can reach further on my behalf.
