Unless we have time and resources to implement something fancy, may I suggest to temporarily shelve anything that takes more than 2 weeks real time to get on osm.org?

I love overengineering things, and https://xkcd.com/974/ .
a) There's a high risk that this will be heatedly debated 2, 3, 5 years from now.
b) Something simple in place might prevent only a fraction of issues, but that's more than nothing.
c) Something simple is easier to extend [if following a sane design].

For example, let's start with a hardcoded limit, set in the DB.
Then it could be extended with per-user overrides, still directly in the DB. If somebody gets to it.
Then some admin interface could be added. If somebody gets to it.
