Floor space can be a bit of a red herring to define mini rings.  I know some minirings that are as large as a garage!  (Yes, I know that I am very observant!) :)

People have grappled with this definition for a while, particularly as there is a school of thought (which I wholeheartedly subscribe to) that CC records of peals, and in particular long longths, should recognise minirings separately.  In the end it seems that people just know which are the minirings and which are not.
