Are there plans to update Ace from its author? Several important changes were made. Of particular importance to me are—removal of the concept of "Too many errors" from JSHint with the buggy implementation in Ace where this warning sometimes shows up even if no errors at all are present in your code above the line with warning, which makes it impossible to see the real errors after the line (the removal was done back in 2011); giving an opportunity to customize worker options and adjust which warnings & info you want to see in the gutter line.

In the meantime I have found that there is an opportunity to customize worker via calling editorSession.$worker.call('setOptions', [{ options }]); (editorSession is obtained by

mw.hook('codeEditor.configure').add(function (editorSession) {
    ...
});

). The list of the options is available here. You can set maxerr to a higher value if you experience the same issue as I do. The fact that, by default, the editor shows "Too many errors" warning at 210–220 line in two distinct scripts of mine with no other errors at all strikes me nevertheless.
