Believe it or not, but this is exactly what happened. Seriously.

Plus, realistically, there are no numbers left currently for anyone except NFS@Home. The 3+/- extensions will give work to everyone, in every weight category - and it could happen around turn of the year possibly. The ECMNET has weeded many easy factors already (there's a steady flow of low p50s), and even double submissions started to happen, which hints at a certain saturation of ECM efforts.
