It is recommended to include quantitative measures as far as possible in the
technical specifications so that we can check conformity objectively.
However, a single quantitative measure such as "font size must be larger
than xx inches" or "sound volume must be larger than xx dB" is meaningless
since as you repeatedly mentioned such quantitative measures depend on the
I have another example; i.e. flicker rate. Flicker is harmful. But no one
cares about a small light on USB memory flicking at the frequency between
2Hz and 55Hz. The reason is obvious: The light is too small to harm.
I think in the general section it is better not to include quantitative
