I think 32MB is too much. You incur latency and lose

See my reply to Bart.
Also, it is not the driver's responsibility to do anything but export

It's up to the sysadmin to choose a disk scheduling policy they like,
which implies that a _scheduler_, not each individual driver, should
place policy limitations on max_sectors.
