The spec mentions the potential abuse of some systems. However, it is
also possible for 'pad' to be abused in a similar way. The total
characters produced by pad should be limited as well.

Nevertheless, I'm not sure what should happen for a too long pad.
There are two options:

1. drop the whole representation, and use the fallback;
2. drop symbols until the total length is acceptable.

Personally I prefer the first option though I do not have a strong reason.
