Although MediumCompare has significantly more information at its disposal than SimpleCompare (since MediumCompare gets the entire print database over which to compute weights) it only improved its best-case score by .0017 relative to SimpleCompare. This seems to indicate that while knowing certain duration values are highly unique, the implementations that used them identified them enough already that the extra weight given to them wasn't needed in general.
