This (or something similar) will be correct once we deploy incremental
upgrades in the wild (presumably by the end of the year). Until then,
Tails does full system upgrades while preserving user persistent data;
so, there is no such limit yet.

This would be my advice in general, unless one has good understanding
of the Tails design (and of Debian, and of [...]) and can guess what
the actual consequences of a change would be. I suspect that having
one's changes merged into mainline Tails may be the best strategy,
when it's relevant.

Cheers,
