That's a somewhat deceptive statement. Required for what? No matter how much travel you have, you'll always be able to go faster (requires more movement for a given bump) or find a bigger bump. In a very real sense, you can never have enough travel. You can, perhaps, design around the 80th percentile bump and speed, which is where a lot of goal come from. There's also inherent limits on stroke created by the overall suspension geometry of the car.
