The significance of the methodology used in the real world is questionable at best. But it is the only larger scale blind listening test conducted at that bitrate that I know, so I find the results interesting regardless, as that range and above has always been where MPC supposedly reigns in quality.

But to further your point, the test shows that ALL of the modern formats are equally superior at 192 kbps and above, not just MPC. And this is why developers have been aiming for transparency at 128 kbps for the past several years...because a large cross-section of the population can't detect any differences, even at that bitrate.
