valve adjustment - feeler friction

I think this might be one of those things you just have to experience in 
person, but I'm in the middle of my first valve adjustment and am 
wondering about how much friction there should be on the feeler gauge.

Since the answers to that would probably be vague, let me ask a more 
specific qualitative question instead:

When the adjustment is correct, do the pivoting feet on the rocker arm 
have any angular/pivotal play in them? By 'feet' I mean the part that 
contacts a feeler gauge on its rocker-arm-facing side.

I have it set where the feet are seen to barely, barely, barely pivot 
when I flex the feeler gauges... small enough that the range of motion 
is almost non-visible. Too tight? Too loose?
