Default How Deep Does a Scratch Have to be to P-TEX?

Title says it all. I am going to tune up and wax my board again today. While I'm at it I was wondering about p-texing a small scratch on the bottom of my board. It's a couple of mm deep, maybe. I wouldn't describe it a a gouge or anything like that. Is it worth trying to fix? It's kind of hard to tell from a photograph but if anyone thinks a picture will help, I'll post one.

basically...

if it's parallel to the grain (structure), leave it alone.

if it's perpendicular to the grain, fill it w/ p-tex

I'm not scared of p-tex and will p-tex anything that will hold it, with the grain or not. I'm a bit of a speed/wax whore and I don't like the feeling of drag whatsoever.

And you can't just rub some p-tex in it, if you were being serious.

I know you can't just rub it in but didnt feel like going into detail since there are so many other threads about it and youtube could show the OP

If you see wood, you better be doing more than p-texing it...
