I'd say it indicates not that the depth calculations need to be tweaked, but
that they are intrinsically inaccurate and not meaningful and should be
disregarded altogether. They foster inter-project competition more than they
accomplish any other task; I personally don't think making projects
competitive (and encouraging work that does little besides increase the
depth mark) is the way to go.
