These factors could not have been discovered using P1.

Yes, both extremes exist.
But I'm curious about how common cases like these are.
A 3D (exponent size, number of factors of k, sizes of factors of k) graph or a distribution table would be extremely nice. But I doubt that's at hand.
Any thought or info/ideas?
