Is there a 'typical' tolerance to be used when there is no value given on a datasheet?
 
For example - I need to make a footprint for OSCCC style crystal but no dimension is given for the D1 / E1 values (gap between the feet). 

Nominal values are provided for foot width (X and Y) so the gap between can be calculated easily.

What tolerance should be used for an accurate footprint?
 
Any and all comments welcome and greatly appreciated.

Tolerances are normally +/- 0.20 mm for larger dimensions and between +/- 0.10 & 0.15 mm for small dimensions.
 
However, for the Corner Concave component family I tend to use the mfr. recommended pattern.
