My point is just that archival data is sufficient to characterize the real world behavior of the algorithms already developed. We needn't wait ten years to know if data limited to what was available ten years ago can predict this year's UT1 to some level of confidence.
Similarly the 500 day predictive behavior could be checked against multiple intervening epochs.
