I don't have personal experience of upping this restriction. However, my
understanding is that if data sizes get large, writing them to network and
disk quickly becomes the bottleneck. Since ZK (presumably) has to guarantee
that writes hit the disk on at least a quorum of followers, the time taken
to process lots of large writes is going to be bounded from below by the
time it takes at least one node to write them all serially. This then
affects ZK's performance.
