Dmitry made its point clear about this, which I understand, and I have
no hopes in that direction.

You want to have 4 (four) 4k utf8 strings as sp parameters or view
columns (you'd use 8k if you could). If that seems absurd around here,
then I'm starting to think I'm in the wrong boat. The first statement
is a fact, the second is an opinion :)

Please explain what you're trying to

I appreciate it, but with all due respect, I'm not asking for it.
Please don't get me wrong -- if this were an embedded system, then,
sure, I'd be glad to play the smart engineer and talk alternatives.
But in an enterprise environment where I'm doing dozens of tables,
views and sps each day, I just want space for maneuver. Your tools
must let you abuse them when you need to, not the other way around :)

Thanks for your patience. If you have more to spare, I'm gonna try
explaining myself better in a more elaborate post.
