Designing icon sets... Any way to create more than 1000 artboards?

So in 2017, they lifted the limit from 100 artboards to 1000 artboards. 

 

It's 2024 now, and Illustrator is facing greater competition. Adobe should increase the limit again because I was seriously checking out other apps that don't have this limit. It doesn't even make sense to limit artboards since artboards aren't what slows down the Illustrator; it's the complexity and number of objects that's the factor.

 

I know about the trick of hiding layers so you can break this limitation, but then you can't control artboard names, among other undesirable effects, so this is not really a solution. The Font Awesome 6 iconset has over 2,000 icons, and the pro has over 30,000 icons. It's not inconceivable to go over 1,000 artboards when Illustrator is used for making iconsets. Maybe this is why Font Awesome switched from Illustrator to using Figma.
