My client wants to put in massive descriptions, despite the fact that I suggested it's not a good idea. Technically there is nothing in the HTML specification that limits meta descriptions to 255 so is it possible to override that?

Technically meta description is limited by field size in DB (256 chars), this limitation is checked by metatags_quick_field_validate().
So, to overcome this limitation, you need to enlarge DB storage and change metatags_quick_field_validate

Google them selves say that this field can be 350 characters now.
Can we please upgrade it to that, at least? or have a more elegant way then hacking the database schema to enlarge it? -- this was changed back in 2009.
Talked about here : (yes, I know for D6, but its fixed in D6 apparently)
