So would anyone disagree that another limiter of the growth of a bacterial population would be their own waste? An increase in the number of bacteria would result in an increase in the amount of waste produced, would it not? And that waste is waste to said bacteria for a reason...

Yeah their waste does play a factor, but just like everything else there are ways to get rid of it. One species' waste is another species' food supply, after all. So I think the extent to which it would limit bacterial growth would have to do with what else is present in the environment.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.
