Currently, MAX_FILE_SIZE is hardcoded in SpecialImport.php, which should be changed so that it could be set thorugh LocalSettings.php
I've removed the limit in r29234; I can't really see any reason to have the extra limit. Not really sure how it snuck in, but it's been there since 2005. :)
I think it was there because PHP really has two ways to know the maximum upload size: through php.ini settings and by MAX_FILE_SIZE paramter sent togeather with the file (http://www.php.net/manual/en/features.file-upload.errors.php). However, I agree with you that it is useless and should have been removed already.
