Think about it this way, if only having 8GB free was detrimental how would that impact all the 16GB phones and iPads? I wouldn't let it get under 1GB but otherwise You should be fine.

True.

Must really suck for 16 GB phones and iPads.

I have a 16gb Air 2 and I frequently have less than 1gb free and have never noticed a slow down.
