Default Wind Casting

Everything I read about wind casting seems to be solved by double hauling to get a tight loop. But I have a few questions. When we say wind, what are we talking about 10 knot, 20 knot? What is a practicle distance in a REAL 15 knot wind with a 10 weight? Does anyone have a leader formula for a specific fish, weight for 10, 15, 20 knot wind conditions? I've heard folks talk about wind but never the velocity. What constitutes an unfishable wind? On the ocean if it's blowing 20 knot you will have significant swells.
If your fishing bones in 2 feet of water with a 20' leader on a 10 weight rod and the wind kicks up to 20 knot do you change to a shorter leader or go home?

Thanks.
