When is an article too small for a standalone article?

Ed Poor merged (or even only redirected) a couple of short articles on Dutch cities and provinces with the main article on the Netherlands, stating that those were too small for a standalone article. While one article (Friesland) had less than 200 bytes, most of them ranged between 200 and 500 bytes. The article on Eindhoven had a length of 542 bytes.

Looking up Special:ShortPages shows the following distribution on the length of articles at Conservapedia:

Bytes: <100 100-199 200-299 300-399 400-499 500-599 >600
number of articles 2333 2910 2961 2929 2527 2130 25247

More than 30% of all articles at Conservapedia (excluding redirects, of course) are shorter than the article on Eindhoven was...
