"A rule of thumb for "enough support" is 8 unanimous approval votes or
15 total votes with a majority approval, but other factors may also be
considered (such as whether a feature is already in use)."

As some have said, the fact that it's already in widespread use makes
the votes recorded on the wiki page a bit superfluous, but there's no
particular harm in formally going through the process. If anyone
raises issues when voting, the proposer is obliged to consider them
before post-vote tidy-up.
