Maximum file size of uploads

One site I support publishes MP3 audio files. So far, I've had to upload every file via FTP and "claim" it in Textpattern's Files panel. I know I can increase the maximum file size using Advanced Preferences, but I'm curious what the tradeoffs are.

Is Textpattern better or safer with a lower max file size? Is FTP just more reliable? Can anyone else who publishes audio using Textpattern comment on their preferences?

+Stef Dawson, you're a musician right? What do you say? 

Thanks!
