I think there's some difficult technical issue Mark alluded to awhile back with increasing the max.

Possibly (read that as "semi-informed guess") the same reason it would be a problem for some mail reading programs... field size for the subject in the message database may be too short to hold more than X number of bytes... with 68 - 72 bytes or so being a number carried forward from the old days when terminals were teletype machines. Ten hashtags jammed into that space would make for some really short tags... esp after considering that the bytes in "Subject: Re [GROUPNAME] " count toward any possible limit on bytes.
