You will not outperform an RDMS since you will have to reproduce the lower-level code where all the performance is.

The query optimizer is not perfect; that is the only place where you can outperform; depending on the query and only if you appreciate granularity.

As far as textbox length goes, it's part of defensive programming. Someone will always try to insert 5,000 spaces and one character, just to see if they can.
It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it.
