Old rider jersey?

If there is a white jersey for best young rider, why not a jersey for best old rider? If the young rider's jersey is white, then black would be apropos for the old guys. Who wouldn't like to see Chris Horner, Jens Voigt and the other old timers battling it out? Could make it 35+ to be eligible. They have master's races for amateurs that are 35+ so that is my suggestion.

No problem for sponsors either. Tell me Viagra wouldn't want a banner spot on the old guy's jersey!
 
because there is a limit of 4 jerseys and it is much more productive to signal a young rider making a name for himself then an old one showing he hasn't totally lost it?

this without even going to deeply into the subject

Is there actually a written limit or is that just a guideline/historical item?
And how does the team classification fit into things?

Its a rule made by the UCI as far as i am aware.

They can make a classification without handing out a jersey though. Look at the Giro with its gazillion different classifications. Thankfully not all have a jersey.
