"Thus there's no physical limit to their length."

Are you sure? Is / will the system being built to accomodate unlimited cars, or is this like Metro which now ~35 years after opening has to engage in a billion dollar power system upgrade to use more 8 car trains?

Until 5 or 6 years ago the average DC resident or rider had no clue that you couldn't just have 8 car trains 24/7. The platform accomodates 8 car trains, why couldn't you run them all the time? I suspect streetcar systems are limited in the same way
