Unscientific, no wonder. I wouldn't ever test a lens using focus+recomposing tecniques, but rather a tripod and manual selection of focus point near the corner. Then you have people freaking out all over the place for nonexisting problems when 95% of the issues have to do with the photographer himself.

In all fairness, he did say it was unscientific, and still I think he made the point he set out to, but yes, I'd prefer to see the procedure you mention when looking at this sort of thing.
