32-bit builds are almost dead, so you may want to revisit the default.
(See trend at https://debbugs.gnu.org/stats/emacs.html )

But isn't it about how much physical memory the system has?
Years ago people were saying 10MB was too small, eg

Anyway, getting OT...

The largest el(c) file in the Emacs sources is ja-dic at 2.2MB,
well below the current default for large-file-warning-threshold.
So not warning about loading a 1/2GB file like in the initial report
seems like a disservice.
