From what I understand of maildir++, all the programs like
the POP, IMAP, and any maildir++ compatable software should
maintain the maildirsize file(s) for each folder, including
INBOX, so the usage should remain the same when moving messages
between folders.  The usage should be restored when deleting
a message.

It's all right when you receive messages because all the check is done in the receiving phase (vedelivermail). All right the same if you move messages between folders (sizes don't change).

But what happens when you create messages with sqwebmail or squirrelmail & courier, or copy them to a remote IMAP server from your local folder?

When you create a message or upload an attach, and keep them inside your "Sent" folder, vdelivermail is not used, so single users may create and store messages until their personal ".maildirsize" let them do it. So they may overflow domain quota.
