It occurred to me that large values would only really appear when occurring in a
narrower scope, e.g. in a multi-column document an image which is multiple
columns wide. Say,
│ #+attr_latex: 3.0\columnwidth

However, I doubt that when previewing the image in Org one would want the
preview to be 3x the buffer text area width!

I suppose the exception would be say something like
│ #+attr_org: :width 300%
Though I can’t imagine why you’d want that…

I think you don’t raise an unreasonable point, however I’m tempted to let this
sit till we hear from someone who actually runs into this as an issue.

All the best,
