I would go further than that.  Alignment is not only an issue with 4K
sector disks, but also with SSDs, USB sticks, and SD cards, all of
which are being deployed in sizes smaller than 128 GB even today.

My vote is for a threshold of 1 G.  This means that worst case, we
could end up wasting as much as 0.1% of the capacity on alignment
(the horror!).
