B2 goes away entirely (if we keep four lists we violate claim 45) and
the other lists become fixed length, yes.
We could also contemplate making them variable length according to some
other set of rules than ARC's, but then you get into having to parse the
other sixty-odd claims of the patent and decide what is a "different
At the moment I'm not seeing evidence that a variable policy beats a
fixed policy anyway. Unless someone comes up with a benchmark showing a
substantial advantage for ARC over 2Q, I think we should just declare
victory over this problem. We have plenty of other tasks on our plates.
