The choice of distro has no relevance. If you use btrfs, you need
at least double the space you would allocate. If you choose a
distro that changes fast, then at least triple.

And as I said: if that is the case, then it needs to be clear to
users. Other distros *are* relevant because they will colour users'
perception with regard to sensible root partition size.

I don't know what other distros do. I don't care, actually. What I say
is that if they use btrfs with snapshots, the size has to be much
bigger, or users will face the same issues as you did.

That is my opinion. Others differ, but you can see what happened
to you...

You seem to be implying that this is a mess of my own creation.

No, I didn't.
