The titles should be limited to 255 bytes (Not the current 260 bytes). Possibly there's a global variable we can share?) The text-fields should not accept more content than the character/byte limit - currently it extends infinitely, but gives warnings if we try to save with more than 260 bytes. - Compare this with a wikitext page:

Someone confused title and text fields on a Flow board. A very long edit summary has been displayed on many watchlists (look at the -1,228 diff). Following this bug, someone ask if it is possible to have a limit for title input.

If a limitation is set up, it should be done to count the final number of characters displayed to allow titles with links (T59153: Allow links in Flow topic titles)- "Title [[with link|linked]]" is 26 or 12 characters long, depending on the way you count it.
