[Bioperl-l] Length of ID in EMBL sequence entries

I just stumbled over my sequence IDs getting trimmed to 10 characters
when writing with Bio::SeqIO::embl.
line 453:
$temp_line = sprintf("%-11.10sstandard; $mol; $div; %d BP.", $seq->id(),

Is there any reason for the trimming?
I can´t find any hints for that in the EMBL manual...

Thanks in advance,
