Isn't this just a cluster-size filling issue?  It looks like accounting is
being done on a bytes-used basis but files are managed on a per-cluster basis,
so it's possible to extend files out to fill the cluster without coming into
conflict with the quota system.

Which is why effective quota security should enable inode limits as well
as byte limits. If I can take up all the useable clusters with 0-byte
files, that is just as bad as being able to take up the useable space with
1-k files.
