One the holding side i would cap the benefits though, meaning one maester is as good as two when it comes to house fortunes.
Personally I'd go the other way round, allow the benefit of two Maesters if the Lord wanted it, but say that the second Maester costs double due to all the extra persuading needed to encourage The Citadel to send two Maesters to one house. But either way the law of diminishing returns applies
