Right, and doing simply 18 mpw for training sans the repeats would be the same as leaving out any speed or sharpening. The researchers failed to satisfy the question, “is it repeatable?” In other words, would the group doing 9 mpw with the 10″ repeats have followed an improvement curve over the long term? Burfoot's conjecture implies that they would, I am less certain.
