What "Maildir size"? The MDA doesn't necessarily know what the "root
maildir" is. The path may not have "Maildir/" string anywhere in it. For
example if you told MDA to deliver a mail to Maildir in /foo/bar/baz,
should it write the maildirsize to /foo, /foo/bar or /foo/bar/baz?

You mean separate quotas for different mailboxes? No, not possible
