IMO: Given that the context for this is an email message, and email already provides places for text, providing one more will just add unnecessary complexity to this specification, without adding serious capability.

On one hand, that introduces length issues, but on the other hand, I don't know
how to write RFC-ese for "allow more than one emoji" without allowing that
sort of reply as well.

The current draft already allows for more than one emoji.

I'd expect length limits to be handled by the usual, 'environmental' limits on header-fields.

(Also, anyone listing enough emojis to run into that limit probably has bigger problems...)
