This encourages saving large images in-line, thus eating up cost of outbound bandwidth. I think we want to have the in-line capability for non-hosted images. But let's at least not encourage them if an externally hosted image exists.

The problem with anything much larger is that wide images will blow the thread formatting (since it pushes the right margin out to fit the image), which especially can be a problem on mobile devices with small screens.
I'll set it to 600 x 1024 and we'll see how it goes. 600 pixels wide will still (barely) fit on an old iPhone screen (held vertically), while the image height is not so much an issue (and increasing it will allow taller images to be linked).

I can't argue for or against size limits on that account. However it confused me why there would be one limit for external images and a larger limit for in-line images.
