Why not just open every file with find-file-literally?

If that loses something, then how come you are prepared to lose that
for files larger than some arbitrary threshold, but not for smaller

IOW, the size of the file usually says nothing about its contents or
the mode in which you'd like to visit that file.  So doing this based
on size alone sounds like not a good idea to me.
