T214904: [Story] length limits for Schema inputs requires that the length limits are “validated in the frontend (i.e. in the input) as well”, but that doesn’t seem to be done – right now you’ll only see an error after submitting the overlong data.

To be honest, I’m not sure what exactly this implies. If we set a maxlength, the browser will discard the extra characters, and if the user doesn’t notice that some of their input is missing, the submit will go through and save incomplete data. Do we want that?
(I think we discussed this in some meeting too, but unfortunately I can’t remember the outcome.)
