Larger lengths have been reported:

and caused this change for sm 8.14:
Increase the length of an input line to 12288 to deal with

It is, but I would rather avoid specifying any limit in the document,
because it is likely to be exceeded in the future.
The "unlimited" length is a pretty bad idea (potential for DoS).
But I guess the document can specify an absolute minimum and allow
implementations to support bigger line lengths.
