Actually the incarnation limit has been scrapped already. In the 70's it was established in 'The Deadly Assassin' that Time Lords can only regenerate 12 times. However, I've read on a Doctor Who website that with the Time Lords now destroyed this rule actually no longer applies.
The Master's horrible appearance in this adventure was apparently due to him being at the end of his twelfth regeneration. However, he managed to bend the rules and continue living by stealing the body of Nyssa's father, Consul Tremas, played by Anthony Ainley, at the end of 'The Keeper of Traken'.

Much as I like Smith and Tennant, I'd like a bit of variety.
