For archival purposes (eg future googlers) having the data/images
on-list is preferable to off-list, since drop.io and friends have less
persistence in my experience.  I agree there should be limits and the
threshold should be fairly small, but the occasional small image or
dataset shouldn't be too onerous.  I admin the mpl list and upped the
default to 200K, but we get more legitimate image submissions than
most lists....
