I've read the entire list, and on many data points I find myself asking these types of questions, so wouldn't more info be a good thing?
So you mean in general, not just for tidal volume?
In many cases we get more information by watching how the value of something changes.
The most basic data items are leak rates and AHI. Hopefully the numbers for those are easily found. AHI below 5, and unintentional leak rate below 24 L/min are both "good".
