There haven't been any popular browsers with the 32kb limit around since 
circa 2002.  See 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Article_size#Web_browsers_which_have_problems_with_long_articles 
for details.  The practical limit for any recent browser is 400KB, almost 
4X as large as the article is now.  For comparison, the longest page on 
Wikipedia proper is 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_of_succession_to_the_British_throne at 
362kb.

There's certainly been a recent flurry of activity as this page has been 
tweaked to meet pent up demand for an easy to edit TODO list, I have my 
doubts the real limit here will be hit anytime soon.

The usual way to handle editing larger documents like this one with better 
responsiveness is to edit section at a time, using the [edit] buttons on 
the right of each section rather than the one at the top.  If you're not 
doing that already that might help you out.

Not arguing against breaking it into sections (don't really care either 
way), just pointing out that it may not actually be necessary.
