I'm not the right person to answer.  But I'd welcome this
functionality, indeed.

Side note: `truncate-string-to-width` doesn't just throw away the
excess but also inserts an ellipsis to announce the truncation, so if we
add such a `max-width` it'd be desirable to make it display an ellipsis
as well when truncating text.
