:-) Well, wait long enough and those messages fill the partition.
Moreover, if it is spooled, the message gets delivered more than once.
<joke>One could count the unique, failed messages and then display a
virtual message: "Since you've last read this notification message at
2010-02-13 23:23, 327 messages could not spooled into your INBOX, because
you are over quota." When it is read (not seen), the count resets.</joke>
But I'd like the "deliver a message if user is under quota and the message
is smaller than quota".
Or an option "deliver may exceed the quota by X", sort of like the
quota_rules for Trash, but for the service. Possible not all scenarios
can tweak a special .conf for deliver containing increased quota_rules.
