That would depend on how far back the laminar flow stays attached to the wing. I suspect on the chords we use at the speeds we fly, it separates about at the flap line or slightly before. SOmeone that's looked at this with a wind tunnel might have a MUCH better perspective on this. However, on a full-scale wing, even waviness of .004 over a 2" section will make the laminar flow separate, and that's without the edges...
