    Why does XF have different max. Lenghts for titles, ids and urls?
    There are IMO too many inconsistencies
    It's just confusing and making automated generation harder.

    admin_permission_id: 25
    permission_id : 25
    permission interface group id: 50
    mediasite id: 25
    option id: 50
    option group id: 50

    phrase title: 75
    admintemplate title: 50
    public template title: 50
    email template title: 50
    mediasite title: 75
    feed title: 250
    notice title: 150

    media site url: 100
    linkforum url: 150
    feed url: 2083

    i can't see any sense, why phrase titles can have a lenght of 75 but template titles only 50, it's just causing troubles with finding good names.
    It's also a nightmare for debugging, with the xenforo datawriter error messages in the acp because they often doesn't say which field isn't valid (this was fixed in 1.2, or? )
