Except that you have offered nothing but conjecture to support the idea that 2014-14 will somehow improve accuracy.

You continue to claim the existence of an unknown number of zombie registrants, but even if we take that as a given, you’ve given nothing to prove that these zombies would somehow magically step forward and register if the needs test were removed. There are all kinds of reasons people may not record transfers that go far beyond the issue of the needs test.
