The web corpus is somewhere north of a trillion pages.  1% of that is
still 10 billion+.

Even for things that aren't evenly distributed, and so occur mostly on
newer content, 1% is a large fraction, which people are likely to run
into on a roughly daily basis.

Chrome, for example, only starts considering whether a feature can be
removed when its usage is under .01% (we usually prefer it to be less
than .003% or so).
