Thank you, ioneja, for your detailed explanation.

The underlying (and unstated explicitly) background to my question was something like: is there a technical specification which puts a strict limit on the message size? (something like 'the length in bytes has to fit into a 32-bit integer'). I could not recall such a rule, but I'm far from claiming I know every verse of every relevant RFC

Your arguments, ioneja, are not of technical nature, they are based on your idea of best working practices, including "don't be a hog". I agree with some, but not all, of them. As they are a matter of opinion, I see no point in arguing about them in public.

Thank you again for presenting your point of view.
