It's not clear to me how you would support the conclusion below that
the most accurate estimate comes from using only 10-20 of the slowest
Given our current state of knowledge, I admit it would be hard to
demonstrate that this is NOT the best approach. But given the very
real suspicion that the very slowest markers may be overestimating
TMRCA, an estimate formed ONLY on those markers would - itself- strike
me as suspicious.
