Basically it is a limit imposed by Nikon et.al. to get round the import duty imposed on camcorders. The legal definition of a camcorder for tax purposes is a device capable of continuous recording of video for 30mins or more, and is subject to a higher rate of duty than a DSLR.
The limit is obviously a software thing so no doubt it could be hacked if you knew how.

If you have one watch you know what the time is. But if you have two you don't know which one is right. The more advice you get the more confusing it becomes...
