Data point: the biggest MIDI file I've ever met is 323kB, and is a
version on _Tubular Bells_. If you want it, google for TUBBEL.MID. Lots
of hits. (It's damned good, too, played through Timidity.)

BTW, it wouldn't be hard to seriously inflate the size of a MIDI file by
putting loads of sysexs in it --- for example, downloading samples into
a softsynth.
