Increasing number of connections on same network

I’m looking to extend the maximum number of connections possible using MavLink. I believe the initial maximum number is 255 with each having a unique ID and that this is determined by the uint8_t sysid.
Would it be possible to extend the number by changing to uint16_t? Is there an alternate method?
Any advice, tips or help for how this could be accomplished would be greatly appreciated.
