Well don't :) Long summaries would make histories and related pages more
difficult to read. Increasing the character count for other scripts doesn't
have that issue. Besides which, anyone writing a mini-essay for a summary would
be better off summarizing it briefly and putting a detailed explanation on the
discussion page. I've seen a lot of edit warring using the summary field as a
mechanism for argument, and longer summaries would only encourage that.
