You seem to be saying no, because the timing is optimized. This means you believe teams are getting the maximum
from the timing currently used.
I'm asking if you have any evidence that this is true. That seems pretty bloody relevant to me.
If the "second unit" scores a significant amount less than the first, it can still be worthwhile if the second unit's rate is sufficiently high to merit the tactic. Can you offer anything to demonstrate that it's not?
