Please file request to run a size recompute on the entire wiki as a
bugzilla request (not in the API category) - admins tend to run this
kinds of scripts once in a while. It will be much easier then
updating databases on the fly during "read" queries.

Can't you rebuilt the sizes for the old
No, that'd require an insane amount of work for the servers and wouldn't
serve any real purpose.
Maybe you could consider computing the size of a revision only when it
is specifically requested (and then store it).
This would surely lighten the load of the servers and eventually all
old entries would have the size computed.
