Increase payload size for IoT Platform from 128KB to possibly few MBs

Current limit on the payload of publish events using the IoT Platform is 128KB.
I have a use case where a smartphone app gathers data and only uploads (publishes) stored data when connected to wifi.

The current limitation will force me to split my data into chunks and have multiple uploads, which can be hard to manage for the developer (in this case myself and a couple others, but generally speaking anyone using the IoT Platform).

    Thanks for the input. We're looking at how we can increase the payload size in the IoT Platform, especially as we look to support video and voice.
