Running Mactex 2016 on the  file 


% !TEX TS-program = xelatex




gives the error message

! No room for a new \count .
\ch at ck ...\else \errmessage {No room for a new #3}
l.131 \alloc at 0\count\countdef\insc at unt\pointcount@

I don’t get the error when running Mactex 2015 or when uncommenting %\usepackage{etex}. According to a post in tex.stackexchange, the use of etex should be included in the kernel, so I don’t understand why it’s needed here. 

Note that I use the commercial mtpro2 package.
