To be precies, tt is not about storing but about indexing...not all
content is indexed. This is not really bad in general, see below

I wouldn't concern about scoring to much for this. It is questionable
how much words after, say, the 10.000th word in a document adds. Most
likely, in 99%, it does not add that much new. It is for a reason
no-one ever noticed the current limitation of 10.000. It cannot harm
if you increase it to say a million.

Also see for the Solr equivalent which has the same default and the
same maxFieldLength name for it:
