I agree that there isn't a one-size-fits-all value, and allowing for more flexibility is useful.

In clreq, the spacing added is "**up to** a quarter of the width of a Han character", so the spacing can be less than 1/4 em. (See [§ 3.2.2 Mixed Text Composition in Horizontal Writing Mode](https://w3c.github.io/clreq/#mixed_text_composition_in_horizontal_writing_mode) and [§ 3.2.4 Handling Western Text in Chinese Text Using Proportional Western Fonts](https://w3c.github.io/clreq/#handling_western_text_in_chinese_text_using_proportional_western_fonts).) And in the case of grid alignment in Chinese and western mixed text composition, it can be [up to half a Han character width](https://w3c.github.io/clreq/#handling_of_grid_alignment_in_chinese_and_western_mixed_text_composition).
