I fail to see how multiplying the amount of data needed to be transferred to the clients by 10 is a good thing for them. You brought this up because you want solo mining to be viable for you which you made clear at the start of this thread. As I pointed out to you that would be a very marginal increase in profits for you.
The update time for transactions weren't mentioned in this thread before I brought it up. I doubt anyone is going to take you suggestions seriously if you keep changing your story but to be fair it wasn't a very well thought out idea to begin with.
I think you should read my first post again. I said nothing of the sort, didn't even mention miners and no I'm not interested in solo mining or even pool mining for that matter.
It seems to me the biggest barrier for BTC to overcome in terms of widespread adoption is POS. And with a 10 minute delay for first confirmation this is problematic at best.
When the proposed change allowing partial databases is implemented this won't be a problem. On the other hand someone being able to walk into a coffee shop and buy a coffee with a 1 minute delay is vastly better than having to wait 10 mins.
In any case I wasn't actually arguing that the change should be made, I was asking if there was any technical reason why it was made that way in the first place that would preclude such a change being considered.
