It's a tough debate - I use dreamhost which follows a limiting policy:


"We still track them[number of queries and connections], but unless
you're in the top .01% of our database users, you'll never need to
worry about conuery usage again!"

The good side is that it keeps the server under a reasonable load and
my server doesn't get bogged down by some custom application that has
horrible performance.  The downside is that long before you fill up
the transfer/month or disk space or...you will use up your 30-40
minutes of CPU time/day.
