There really isn't a point in stacking beyond that. There is a diminishing return involved past the cap. I wouldn't go as far as obsessively trying to eliminate any point over the cap as the overage has no negative effect.

This is an old article (from Mar. 2008) but it gives the general idea how defense and diminishing returns work. It also explains that while going over the cap provides benefits that it in essence is overkill.

Defense Cap Defined

So far as I'm aware the mechanics discussed here haven't changed to the point where the article is invalid but someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
