I've honestly tried to work on this and I discovered that it's not that obvious:

Also, under the hood you're saying that, since Wikimedia have multiple teams (multiple Tags) it would be nice to allow to change Task Points without interfering each other,
I've shared two proposals, that are actually requests for comments. I would be glad if some people could give a look and share a comment.
Thanks for the suggestion. Default-to-1 has been mentioned before, and it's not feasible because of teams that need to cross-tag, where some teams use Story Points and some don't (thus, 1 point means something to one team but another thing to another). It's also common for 2 teams to use story points but have different meanings, where 1 point is a totally different scale depending on context.

Having said that, in the meanwhile, as workaround, probably you could just - in few clicks - add "1" as Point in each Task. Then, use the Point Limit just as a "Count Limit" logically. If you would go for this approach, it would be great for you, because then you could ask the Wikimedia Foundation to, simply, assume 1 Task = 1 point by default, and I think that would not be a problem for anyone there. I say this since I want to suggest something quickly feasible for you, without waiting to reach consensus for a breaking change on everyone else in the Phorge world (which in any case maybe deserves a discussion).
I honestly think that adding a new feature called "Count Limit" on Columns would be useful for you, so that you can use Points Limit on Milestones; and Count Limit on Columns (and ignore Point Limit on Columns).

I like your assumption of good faith! I'm a little more cynical about the thoughtfulness of Phab development, and the thoroughness of features deployed. I'll try to follow your example. :)
I noticed that, if you click on whatever other link while you are editing something, the Dialog is not show, and you just can lose your work.
Thank you @dcog for this Dialog confirmation that saves my day.
I don't think the hundreds of installations that use Phorge would want to abandon the way they do their thing so drastically. That is why I suggest to think about something that helps both them and you.

Thanks for your help! Much appreciated that the attention on this is being raised. :)
So, if I have understood correctly,
Hi! Thanks for following up on this. :)

I've proposed a fix for the regression here:
It's been suggested that simply defaulting all tasks to 1 point solves this issue. However, that raises other issues (for instance, some teams may already be using the Story Points field for actual story-pointing).
By the way I have not understood if you are aware of this situation (I was not):
@MBinder_WMF Does it still describes you goals, or have I distorted it too much?

@valerio.bozzolan Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the late response. I must admit that i forgot how we eventually fixed our issue, i only recall it was more about "avoid the issue" and less about "fix the issue". I also completely forgot about this Maniphest. Hence, it is OK for me that it is closed by now. sorry for not taking care about this earlier.
If you are really really really interested in hard-blocking Task creation from custom rules using Herald, it should be probably developed a new Herald Action to support the "block Task creation" if something happens. But I honestly cannot implement this feature, so at the moment I hope the "auto-comment" is enough for you.
One thing that could be done right now is:
Thank you again for your question. Sorry if I start marking this as closed since currently this specific Task with this title is probably not implementable as-is. We have some approaches without much feedback from the original poster it's very difficult to do something concrete that do not impact other workflows.

As a proof of concept I've uploaded a GIMP image (GIMP = green is my pepper) as Task image.

OK no sorry, it already does not show any content.
