As mentioned I'm 6ft riding with an Arai XD and as a result of peak buffeting I developed the screen basing it on the principle of a rolling lower pressure airflow off the lip and the "faster' laminar air being dflected over and above peak line. To me testing at a 160kph I could tilt my head right back without my head being torn off.

Buffeting occurs as various body parts of both bike and rider get into unstable airflow. As also mentioned experiences can and most times are different for most people e.g. different riding positions, sitting forward or backward on the seat, arms tucked in arms out, skinny, broad, helmet type even weather conditions on the day etc etc.

I guess a perfect screen would be a very large screen in width and height, but not many people I'm guessing want a "delivery bike" look either.
