I see, that's a _good_ goal. What I saw happening in my
Spice model (using who-know-who's original CD4069 model,
but making good sense), was an imbalance between the N
and P devices at low voltages, so that at the nA current
level one device couldn't turn on enough to over-rule the
other's leakage, or something. So real flip-flop action
could only be counted on occurring at supply voltages above
such malfunctions. You'd need the worse-case voltage for
that (I'm sure it's well under 3V), plus the worst-case
current for overcoming a p-channel device at that voltage.
