What exactly is "restricted mode" in monerod?

Hi, As many of you know, I'm a developer of \`monero-python\` package. I also run software based on it. After upgrading to 0.17.x and syncing I received several messages that \`"Too many transactions requested in restricted mode"\`. The worst is that I only requested a handful of transactions, exactly a set from one mined block. I disabled that "restricted mode" and continued, as it seemed useless to me. Questions now: 1. What exactly is "restricted mode" and what it blocks/limits? 2. What do I risk running a public node in "unrestricted mode"?
