That's not longer true. Recent versions have a max. length limit of 24 
bytes (compile time limit).
I think I'll commit a change which mentions this limit in the
$ ./john --list=build-info
output.

Default max. length is 13, see john.conf:
[Incremental:ASCII]
File = $JOHN/ascii.chr
MinLen = 0
MaxLen = 13
CharCount = 95
