The 2000 byte size limit for data area happened to coincide with the
original max size for a CLP character variable.

BTW, 4Mb was the max for a model 7.  The original models were the 3 & 5.
The 3 could have as little as 512Kb and the 5 maxed out at 2Mb.   IIRC, CPF
Rel 6 required about 100Mb of DASD and it was much bigger than the earlier
