Programatically enforce Metastore property length limits

      Description

      Currently the ORM is the de facto enforcement mechanism for string length limitations. I think this is a bad approach since 1) users can work around it by manually altering the underlying tables, and 2) the limits are stated in terms of bytes so the actual length restriction in terms of number of characters will depend on the character set of the underlying DB.
