And presumably df on the filesystem would also show it approaching 100%
utilisation?

I'm used to this where a large file has been unlinked but is still open. 
The preallocation case is a new one to me though.

How about if the total of all preallocations were limited to some small
percentage of the total filesystem size?  If you reach this limit and want
to preallocate some space for another file you'd have to either drop or
shrink an older preallocation.
