If you promise Shimano and us that you won't use the 30/12, 30/14, 30/16... combos, then you won't need a full 44T capacity. Just make sure the chain is at least long enough to loop the biggest chainring and cog with an inch to spare. (This is a special case where the small-small chain sizing method shouldn't be used.)
