Some of my messages are up to 20MBs with the attachments and 1MB messages are very common. I also worry about the raw message having unescaped quotes in the message messing up to actual storage of the message in the INBOX. Are HTML mail messages encoded to be safe to enclose in quotations? Or, should I encode the entire mail message and trust that Dovecot can handle decoding the message in the back end?

The question is: why do you want to deliver 20MB messages with doveadm http api? I would not replace LMTP with that.
