There might be a situation where you allow connections from internet to your mysql server and at the same time you use that server from another server (like using dedicated mysql server). If max_connection_errors were to catch this main server IP then effects would be disastrous (like hundreds of webpages down). But if max_connection_errors catches some internet IP it's no biggie. So there should be a list of safe ips from this check like 
max_connection_errors_safeip =,,

How to repeat:
