Perhaps the weight "limits" are there for liability purposes. I would imagine that an easy way for Reynolds or Columbus to beg out of a lawsuit would be to point to the weight of the rider as the cause of the failure...and say that the guidelines were not followed by the manufacturer or seller of the product.

I think it is pretty clear that those weight guidelines are more along the lines of matching tubesets to riders for the best riding experience. I wouldn't read them as being safety related (but that's just me, don't me because you buy silly light tubes and get hurt).
