And it's also too bad that I can't actually use your new information in my publications! Needless to say, I won't bother to post this as a feature request at MakeMusic. :( Someone might do that at Dorico, however.

So we are basically in the same range, and it now comes down to a matter of taste. For me, your 1.9 space is at the very limit and I would probably go with something a little smaller despite the larger white space after it.
