Member notes maximum length

Can member notes maximum length in UI be changed from 500 to value set in schema?

Refer to member notes length of 2,000 characters set here Ghost/schema.js at 12f59e7ec0e4ba9f66c837c70b4204cbe15808fc · TryGhost/Ghost · GitHub

On reflection I am guessing that 2,000 length mentioned in the schema is to accommodate unicode characters.

The use case for this question is to store more than 500 characters in notes. I will be having more of a deep dive into making this work shortly. Has anyone got an opinion if this is a path worth pursuing?
