HTML5 already says:

   User agents may impose implementation-specific limits on otherwise 
   unconstrained inputs, e.g. to prevent denial of service attacks, to 
   guard against running out of memory, or to work around 
   platform-specific limitations.

...and there are several other statements in the spec to handle specific 
cases (e.g. out-of-JS-Number-range attribute values reflected into the 
DOM, or handling out-of-control scripts).
