Oh yes, I focused on the overall record without remarking the  
possibility of a checkmate ending... Btw it is possible to get an  
average length greater than 4 in the ep framework:

1. Pe2-e4   Pb7-b5     2. Dd1-g4   Pb5-b4     3. Dg4xg7   Ff8xg7
4. Ff1-a6   Fg7xb2     5. Re1-e2   Fb2-e5     6. Fc1-b2   Fe5xh2
7. Fb2xh8   Fh2-e5     8. Th1-h6   Fe5xa1     9. Th6-b6   Fa1-f6
10. Cg1-h3   Ff6-h4    11. Fh8-a1   Fc8xa6    12. Pc2-c4   Pb4xc3ep

ep(22,51,1) in 12.0 => 4,015... Maybe it is possible to mix those 2  
PGs to break that bound, but I didn't find something convincing until
