LT3050: External current limit minimum value


I am trying to design a 15mA current limited 5V linear regulator. The input is 12V switching power supply (IRE-12/10-Q12PF-C).

From the datasheet of LT3050, I could not tell if the part can be configured for a 15mA current limit. It seems that I(limit) or Rl(MAX) values  are missing from the electrical characteristics tables. Can I use a 7.68k resistor to set the external current limit of the LT3050 at 14.94mA. Will the current limit precision stay within the 5% window?
