One set of data is here:


That was taken from the original research I did for HTML5 back in 2005. I 
have continued to do that kind of research to support the decisions that 
I've made as editor since then (e.g. I have data on the distribution on 
the number of <base> elements per page, ignoring <base> elements with 
duplicate values), but I haven't published the data anywhere since it's 
somewhat tedious to have to write it all up (basically, I can either write 
it up and publish it, or I can edit the spec, and the latter seems to be a 
better use of my time).
