I'll cite one obvious example: Arabic Presentation Forms-A, U+FB50..U+FDFB.
Those were added to 10646 by WG2 against the recommendations of the UTC.

I don't see how such an estimate could be helpful -- it wouldn't
reflect the history or purpose of the decision-making regarding
ISO/IEC 10646 in any meaningful way. Nor is it clear what metric
you could use for "counting" decisions.
But if you insist: it is certainly greater than 1% and certainly
less than 99%, +/- 50%.
