I don't think the MA colo's limits ought to be the only ones applicable
here, and it looks like you think this way too:

I'm pretty sure the MA colo can't create 1.5Tb guests, yet them
being tested and supported by XenServer should generally suffice
for upstream to also consider them supported. Same would then
go for other distros testing and supporting certain larger limits
(without extra patches to enable that).
