Let me flip the question around for you: "How many Aasimar and Tiefling characters does a player want to have, and why that many?"
Let's look at some math that is overly simplified and rounded off. Please don't nitpick it later - I'm simplifying it because I'm lazy and don't want to actually look through the paths.
As of August, 2014, there have been:
5 seasons of 26 scenarios = 130 available experience
~25 modules for character levels <12 = 75 available experience
6 sanctioned adventure paths @ 12 XP each for character levels <12 = 72 experience
Total available XP for scenario-legal characters: 277
Total number of characters, as of now, that you can get to level 12: 8.4
Given that most people probably won't want to have ALL of their characters as Aasimar or Tiefling, more than 6 is, in my opinion, ridiculous.
What's excessive? In my opinion, which in this case should not be taken as an official answer, having more than 2 characters of a given race - of any given race - is excessive. Personally, I'd have limited it to 1 aasimar and 1 tiefling character per player.
