In cases where we have suitable text that we are confident covers Full
while not being unclear for Tiny, yes, we do prefer to do that.

In this case, having after several rounds of revisions worked out text
that covers width and height to the satisfaction of a *different*
commentor, we didn't want to upset that by making a change here.

As you already agreed that the text is correct for Tiny, we can't see
why you persist in disagreeing here.
