You offer some reasonable caveats one should consider, but then jump to the absurd conclusion that these lead to the test being "completely useless".

Take for example the eight replications with near identical results for the Lynx Hilo done by five different contributors. Even more data would be better, but that's far from useless information.

More replications with less tested converters would make the overall list more useful, as would more tests on combinations.
