The problem, David, is that ZUF appear to have taken a step in the
WRONG direction. Instead of identifying the many different factors
that might affect the translation of intraclade variance into a TMRCA
estimate, they instead took the approach of throwing all the factors
into a blender and concocting a mess.

Of all the papers I've seen published, the ZUF papers have done more
harm to the field than any others.
