Any word on limiting how much disk space time machine uses on time capsule and use the rest as external storage? I imagine one could load up time capsule before time machine fills it up, but that's a little janky.

I would imagine that time capsule is nothing more than an Airport and "External" drive. You can probably use it just like any other external drive and partition it as you wish.
