So if there is error on reaching max threshold size, won't it loose all data or
is that expected?

Also I think it might not be applicable for all table inserts, as normally
checkpointer/bgrwriter flushes data, so you might not be able to estimate
size immediately when your SQL statement is executing.

Won't it better to have LIMIT Rows in Select statement or generically
have table level option for Max Rows?
