Relax request limits on Showcase URLs

Description

Historically, various sections of wp.org have implemented rate-limiting restrictions for performance reasons.

Many of these limitations have since been lifted/reduced, and, many performance optimisations have been put in place elsewhere.

The showcase, however, still aggressively limits requests. This may be harming our SEO, as Google frequency receives a 429 status when requesting these pages.

I'd like us to review and reduce/remove the limitations on this section. If there are performance concerns, there are myriad optimisation opportunities across the site (and in this section in particular) which we can launch before/after/in conujnction.
