Photoshop: Designate maximum file weight for Generate > Image Assets

I regularly have to create hundreds/thousands of differently sized graphics. Generate > Image Assets has saved me a ton of time, but rather than having to tweak quality in the syntax, why can't I just type a file weight instead?

Example:
1000x1000 sweet-image-1000x1000.jpg40% + 500x500 sweet-image-500x500.jpg75%
would then be
1000x1000 sweet-image-1000x1000.jpg95kb + 500x500 sweet-image-500x500.jpg65kb

This seems like a much more effective way of handling file weights rather than working with % that has to be tweaked every time I go to make that same set of images.

You can do a similar thing in save for web legacy dialog.

Not sure what happened to my other account here, but I can't do that with several hundred assets at a time. If this were a step with a single asset it wouldn't be a problem. But I generally work in several simultaneous .psd files with multiple artboards-each with their own pixel dimensions and each with their own specific pixel weights. I basically either need some way to say "these dimensions can't be bigger than XXkb" or I need to be able to put that in the Image Generator syntax.
