We've told you several times in the past that we will measure whether new information is sufficient to reopen the issue based in part on the reactions of WG members to the new information. We can't give you exact quantities because we can't predict what every single WG member will think. So you are not going to get exact numbers.

If you keep asking this question again, don't expect to get a different answer. In fact, posting the same thing over and over without adding information is not in line with our Discussion Guidelines: "t's inappropriate to repeat the same argument over and over without adding new information." <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/DiscussionGuidelines>.

Regards,
Maciej
