If processing is limited by memory size, then let the limit be enforced by
the memory manager. That way, if you add more memory, the limit goes away.
The concern at higher levels should only be to trap the errors coming from
lower levels and produce meaningful diagnostics and helpful recovery

I would say it is definitely bad design to try to write a schema that
imposes its own limits solely in order to prevent an "out of memory" error
