There has been some internal discussion that Ouroboros needs and recommends [CITATION NEEDED] empty slots. (not producing a block every slot) Specifically that this is needed to heal short term forks.
This is counter to other internal discussions suggesting that we want to produce lots of blocks. (at /least/ one per slot, maybe more.) This is supposed to aid in stake being offline and help ensure robust transaction processing.
I’d like to try to resolve these two approaches and better understand how we should tune things.
