You are being self contradictory. If you don't have any hard numbers, you cannot actually claim a majority at all and yes, finding hard numbers is difficult if not impossible and doesn't really translate

But this is exactly what drives people up the wall:
  - Please change X
  - Why would we, how can we know if other like it like that?
  - Look, there's plenty of indication on the web that that's the case
  - Pfff, even 95% numbers are not good, we want HARD numbers!
  - ... but ... that's nearly impossible to get :(
  - Sure, we know it's impossible, that's why we asked for them. Duh
I explicitly did not ask for them. 95% is just made up statistics as usual. I merely said that claiming a majority is impossible too. I also noted that even things changed with many usability studies behind them have lots of people hating that particular change. So there isn't one particular default that satisfies everybody's tastes and that's ok since changing it is pretty easy in this case and the non default cases are being improved all the time as well.
