@Mengerian if it were advertised a miner could calculate what present of the hash would be needed to get X number of blocks ahead to have Y number of nodes follow without a hitch.

I think (math being back of an envelope) 7 blocks ahead is >50% of the network with a 20% variance.

So this could be good info for a miner. It's not hard data schrodinger's cat being the quintessential test as one won't know who is faking until you test.
