Implications of excluding an Event from the Recorder?

With Prevent overly large event data from being stored in the database by bdraco · Pull Request #90747 · home-assistant/core · GitHub in 2023.4 (I think), HA is now limiting Event data to 32kb in the Recorder.

In the custom-components/places integration, some events are larger than that.

What are the implications of excluding the event from the recorder (Recorder - exclude event_types)? I guess I’m not quite clear what someone would use the historical event data in a recorder for.

They won’t show up in logbook anymore assuming a logbook platform has been implemented for them.

The bulk of the loss would be the ability to manually look at them in db if no logbook platform has been implemented.
