Maybe this is too rare to use as justification, but in one article, to make the point that a certain view is by far the prevalent view in the field, I listed 20 or so citations consecutively. This has survived edits by various editors. Generally, however, I limit to 3 for a point; if I want to keep more, I look for what distinguishes them and make additional statements or discard the additional citations. Some would argue that even 3 are too many for some points, but sometimes I find it useful when people want to challenge content entirely, e.g., as allegedly fringe.
