comment What's the practical limit for rainbow-table based bruteforce?
What I'm interested in, basically, is what the upper bound on M+N is that can be bruteforced in practice, today, by a dedicated attacker (as per the scenarios). Perhaps the focus that I put on rainbow table was wrong.

Strange choice? It is one that I've seen in use pretty often, that's the only reason. And what does the size of 64bit+ come from? What's behind that figure?

comment What's the practical limit for rainbow-table based bruteforce?
I agree. The distinction in my question between password and salt is rather pointless - but I left it there in order to prevent comments like "hey, you should use a salt also". However, the complexity should be reduced if the attacker knows the exact length of the total password (M+N). I have updated the question to be more precise about this.
