Legendaries. Too many, or not enough?

Legendary Pokémon, some of the most powerful, and most majestic Pokémon in the world of Pokémon. Each generation has had these amazing Pokémon of legend, and each generation had released more legendaries than the preceding one. Are there too many of these Pokémon being released? Should Game Freak slow down on this wave of legends?
Let us look at the generations in order:
Generation I: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew.
Generation II: Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Celebi.
Generation III: Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi, Deoxys.
Generation IV: Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Dialga, Palkia, Heatran, Regigigas, Giratina, Cresselia, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, Arceus.
In simple numbers, we have 5, 6, 10, and 14 for a total of 35 legendaries.
Don't those last two numbers seem extremely high? Generation I released the first 151 Pokémon, 3.3% of which are legendary. Generation II released 100 new Pokémon, 6% of them are legendaries. Generation III, 135 new Pokémon, 7.4% are legendaries. And the most recent, Generation IV, 107 new Pokémon and a gigantic 13.1% are legendaries!
Generation V, what will we see? 115 new Pokémon, and 20, 25 of them being legendaries?! What will happen further down the road, will legendaries take over an entire generation at some point? I, even as a trainer of legendaries, really hope that such a takeover will not happen.
Currently, I am unable to think of more to add, so I shall make my leave for now. Please feel free to comment on the topic at hand, and voice your opinions on the number of legendary Pokémon appearing in each generation. Thank you.
