In science:

This assumption is unjustified in realistic quintes sence models as one expects wQ to have varied at the radiation to matter transition and to be decreasing today.

We tested the performance of our quad-based index against a triangle-based index and a quintuple-based (“quint”) index.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
Since the triangle- and quint-based indices have feature spaces of different dimensionalities (2 for triangles, 6 for quints), we first ran our system with the matching tolerance set to 0.02 in order to measure the distribution of distances of correct matches in the three feature spaces.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
For the triangle-based index, we found this matching tolerance to be 0.0064, for the quadbased index it was 0.0095, and for the quint-based index, 0.011.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
After looking at the brightest 50 stars in each image, the triangle-based index is able to recognize the largest number of images, but both the triangle- and quint-based indices take significantly more time than the quad-based index.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
We expect that the relative performance of triangle-, quad-, and quint-based indices depends strongly on the angular size of the images to be recognized.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
The quad-based index vastly outperforms the triangle- and quint-based indices.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
Right: The number of features tried (i.e., the number of triangles, quads, or quints of stars from the image that were tested), and the number of matches to features in the index that resulted.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
Quints, on the other hand, are very distinctive: for over 80 % of the images that were correctly recognized, the first matching quint ever found was a correct match.
Astrometry.net: Blind astrometric calibration of arbitrary astronomical images
However, many quints from the image have to be tested before this match is found.
