It's currently possible to set CNAME and MX records for domain names on free hosting. For a basic website, these settings are enough. However, many external services expect you to configure TXT records as well. Email service providers demand you configure SPF and DKIM (which are TXT records) and certain domain validations (like Google Webmasters) prefer TXT records as well.

I think TXT records would be a very useful addition to free hosting accounts.

our current dns implementation allows for 255 chars max in the data part, this limitation is the reason we have not added this to date. 

Will we be expecting for that character limit to become bigger to allow  TXT records?

~Thank you in advance!

I think that character limitation would be fine for most TXT records, you could try adding a section for it and giving a warning whenever a TXT record exceeds that max.
