Discussed in London; an implementation SHOULD NOT send its peer a message that's over the peer's advertised size.  Text clarifying that the peer is advertising the (approximate) limit at which it will refuse to accept a message, enabling the local implementation to fail more quickly and avoid the risk that the "refusal" might be a connection termination which would disrupt legitimate messages as well.
