arcpy.ExcelToTable field name length limitation for in_memory output

I found out there is a limitation of 10 characters for field names if you output arcpy.ExcelToTable() to a "in_memory" table.

 

Why? Is it because dbf format is used?

 

I dont have this limitation when I use "in_memory" with other tools such arcpy.CopyFeatures_management().

 

arcpy.ExcelToTable_conversion("C:\\temp\\input.xlsx", "in_memory\table")

 

Is there a way to use get rid of this limitation with arcpy.ExcelToTable() and "in_memory"?
