This is being nitpick, but I wouldn’t call it a “foundation” since juries are not required to be unanimous in every case in every state. Some states allow conviction for some crimes without unanimity (and the Supreme Court has held that this is constitutional).

Whether it’s legally assault is irrelevant to whether it would provoke him to punch her. And responding to someone throwing a drink on you with a punch would not normally be justifiable self-defense, if that’s what you were trying to get at.
