Microsoft has announced that this is now possible:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/turn-off-teams-native-file-upload-policy

According to the documentation this can now be turned off for specific users or globally setting teams policies via PowerShell.
The down side might be that people will not be able to see the Files tab also in chats and meetings which is a quite useful feature.
