Increase Bleed Limit!
1 inch bleed limit may seem extreme for offset (usually 1/8") or packaging (1/4"), but people use Illustrator for all kinds of projects! Textile vendors want much more. The limit makes proofing annoying because we need to get approvals without bleed.

This *seems* like a quick win that I'd love to see happen. Without knowing the codebase, this seems like a nice task for an intern to get into, explore the codebase, and break the bleed limit ceiling.
Agreed, I work on large format print and need a larger bleed!
PLEASE. We work with huge exterior files that have different bleed requirements (like bleeds that wrap around physical poles). There's no reason to artificially limit bleed settings to 1".
