Not a dumb question at all. I think the answer is simply the string length limit of PL/SQL.

In general with CLOB's, you have to deal with the physical realities of limits in the db. It's harder to just make everything logical like you theoretically should be able to with relational databases. So physical limits are worked around by hiding in packages, or hiding the realities in other languages.
