Being a trapsmith: what does it entail?

I am building a rogue character for my next campaign and I came across a theme called trapsmith, which gives you a trap-making kit to construct traps with. However, it never specified any sort of parameters for building traps. If I was a trapsmith, what could stop me from  littering an entire floor with pit traps? Are there time restrictions? Level restrictions? How does it all work?
The "traps" you can create are described in the powers that the Trapsmith theme gives you.  IOW, you don't really get traps as such, you just get some powers that are flavored as if they are traps.

You can read all about the Trapsmith theme in the online Compendium under Character Themes.      

OD&D, 1E and 2E challenged the player. 3E challenged the character, not the player. Now 4E takes it a step further by challenging a GROUP OF PLAYERS to work together as a TEAM. That's why I love 4E.

"Challenge" is overrated.  "Immersion" is usually just a more pretentious way of saying "having fun playing D&D."
