This provides a rough estimate of the space that the note will require on disk.

This attribute provides a means to help with maintenance of large—in terms of file size—TBX documents as the user can track down the largest notes to review content. Although embedded images are a driver of file size, there are other factors such as: many attributes with local (i.e. note-level) values set, much text, or text with a lot of styling features.

However, embedded images/documents are the likeliest cause of very large notes, and this is the primary purpose of this attribute.
