I came here today to report the same thing, but saw it has already been
reported. This is especially confusing when editing a page that contains a
template that in turn uses {{PAGESIZE:}}, since then it is hard to find out
what is causing it. And {{PAGESIZE:}} is probably mostly used in templates, so
that is the normal case. 

Today I added two {{PAGESIZE:}} calls to a sub-template of {{documentation}} on
enwp. I use those two calls for debug purposes to detect and report some faulty
usage. I am checking if there exist two talk subpages larger than 200 bytes,
too large to just be redirects, and report it to a category so we can remove
those talkpages. But now we see red links to the two talkpages below the edit
window when editing most templates on the English Wikipedia that use the green
/doc boxes. That might result in people clicking those redlinks and creating
those talkpages. Exactly what I don't want to happen... Fortunately in this
case I only need to use the {{PAGESIZE:}} calls for some days, since I only use
them for a debug run. But if I needed to use {{PAGESIZE:}} for a long time,
then it would be a bigger problem.
