It is, but I would rather avoid specifying any limit in the document, because it is likely to be exceeded in the future.

If it's big enough, I'm sure you can say "may be exceeded, although unlikely".

But I guess the document can specify an absolute minimum and allow implementations to support bigger line lengths.

Isn't that what RFC 1869 section 4.1.2 does?

I would like to see text saying something like "no implementations are known to support line lengths greater than 12288 and it is thought unlikely that any SASL mechanisms will ever require longer line lengths".
