RC basically uses OPS in it's formula, so saying RC doesn't prove or disprove anything when it comes to OPS, they are one and the same - just organized differently. It also seems much more reliable at the macro level, than the micro.
I also don't believe that the higher OPS is "always" better - as I value the O more than the S.
