I think the whole idea is that it should improve raw prediction rate
on unseen samples too.  The motivation of the increased suprevision is
to improve the hidden representation in the network, making it more
suitable for longer-term tactical predictions and therefore "stronger"
and better encompassing the board situation.  This should result in
better one-move predictions in a situation where the followup is also

It sounds rather reasonable to me...?
