I'm neutral on the question but here's a few facts:
Rep points have a set maximum of 2147483647, I have know idea what the significance of that number is.
Most of the frequent posters on the site are at that max or close to it
A person with max rep adds about 30 million points to a non maxed out poster when they give + rep
A person with max rep removes about 11 million points when they give neg rep
