I don't know what the limits are, but the following area is probably among 
the most dense that it will need to handle. These are 0.1x0.1 degree 
squares. The coordinates given are for the NW corner. The fields are counts 
of objects by type with the exception of the last field, which is the file 
size of the OSM XML.

Fortunately, this particular area is relatively clean, so the resulting 
changesets should be small. As it stands now, there are areas of LA (a bit 
further south) that are not at all clean, and maybe as much as 60% as dense 
as the smallest of those above.
