Mass-market paperbacks are a fixed size, viz. 4+3/16 in (106 mm) wide,
6+3/4 in (171 mm) tall. This allows them to fit on book racks in airports
worldwide, as well as convenience stores. I have numerous purpose-built
shelves in my apartment to handle this size. As you can see, it is very
close to A6 (105 x 148 mm), which probably also fits on said airport book racks.

Most languages are dramatically underdescribed, and at least one is
dramatically overdescribed. Still other languages are simultaneously
overdescribed and underdescribed. Welsh pertains to the third category.
