Yes, but two measurements are better than one imho.

Then put it up like this:
OGR-24 is 274% complete
This value is only a estimate and could go up to well over 200 percent. Read here why
<link to short faq>.
Maybe a separate stats db could be implemented before next OGR? something like this:
(disclaimer: i know nothing about databases)
<stub>,<number of passes>
giving sum of passes / number of stubs = average number of passes.
giving something like in daas .plan update.
This whould ofcourse only give a rough estimate, since it ignores duplicates. Is it
possible to do? Hope i'm making atleast some sense :)
Big thanks to bwilson for clarifying things. Now go put it in a .plan :)
