Indeed.  With LiveCode, for example, fields can *theoretically* hold up 
to 4GB, but I pity the person who tries it.

There's often a vast difference between theoretical addressing limits 
and real-world use, hence my interest in finding actual use cases for 
SQLite.

A curious limitation.  Which ones?
