Well I've been posting this question on a different forum also and the outcome is:

THERE IS NO LIMIT, besides the bridge ID which maxes out at 65535.

The only reason the diameter of 7 existed was spanning tree and at that it is a very old RECOMMENDATION. The limitations will be the broadcast domain, number of hosts in one flat network and the switches' limitation on the mac table.

Regards, Maarten Sjouw.
