Comment #7 on issue 669 by oliver.j...@gmail.com: Disabling backward
compatibility for some messages only
If you require a 30MB limit for correct operation, with no optional fields,
and you retain this data, why can't an attacker send 30MB of valid data and
cause you problems that way?
I am really having trouble understanding exactly what you're defending
against. Do you have an example of what a hostile message's structure would
look like and how disabling optional fields would help?
