Allow Taxon Search API endpoint to count total results higher than 10,000

The Taxon Search API endpoint seems to return a maximum value of 10,000 in the total_results field. Would it be possible to let it return the actual number of taxon records that match the input parameters?

So for example, if I wanted to know how many bird species iNaturalist had in its taxonomy, I’d like to be able to get that number from total_results from the request below. (Right now, it returns 10,000.)

https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/taxa?taxon_id=3&rank=species&per_page=1&only_id=true

{
  "total_results": 10000,
  "page": 1,
  "per_page": 1,
  "results": [
    {
      "id": 6930
    }
  ]
}
