Hmmm. I am not sure about that. All those Mix and Add shaders nodes only
operate on BSDF weights, so I am not sure what you would clamp there

As for Maxwell, they have two blending nodes. Normal (like Mix in Cycles)
and Additives (Add in Cycles). Add works in pretty much the same way. There
is no energy conservation as far as I can tell. At least I can easily
create a material with 10 additive BSDFs there that will blow the whole
scene up as soon as light hits it.

Those are layers. Within layers you can have your BSDFs and assign weights
to them. All those weights are renormalized. So it you have 3 BSDFs with
weights 10, 20 and 30%. Then it will divide each weight within that layer
by the sum of weights in the same layer. 10% becomes 10% / ( 10 + 20 + 30 )
= 16%, 33% and 50%.

But stuff that you can easily in belnder/cycles with nodes.
