0.2 mm is about my standard also. Certainly for dovetails, meters etc. It does not always work out this way on practice though. Yes, wood is unstable, but it won’t change much in the time you are making a joint or a project. For large pieces, such as bed rail I’ll cut at least within 0.5 mm. Nobody will ever notice, but it just feels good.
