Shamir Backups Make Hardware Wallets More Secure

Let's contact Ron and Shamir asking them to help us fully map MtGox presence on the blockchain.

Some time ago there was a really good paper studying the blockchain. In this they studied the whole blockchain and connected the accounts that sent money together as coming from the same wallet.
Quantitative Analysis of the Full Bitcoin Transaction Graph from Dorit Ron and Adi Shamir
By doing this they could identify several whales.
Now, I think that with the situation with MtGox we should ask the help from those two researchers, and fully map MtGox activity. If we all share the entry point and the exit address in which we sent money and received money from MtGox it should be quite easy to just map the whole animal out. This would be divided, I suppose, in entry address, exit address, inside address never used but only rarely to store coins, in between address. And then maybe we can start to see exactly from which address some bitcoins have been siphoned out.
It's just a simple unidirectional graph. I don't know how many nodes will it have, but probably we should be able to even draw it.
Any comments before contacting them?

Based on Shamir’s Secret Sharing, a cryptographic algorithm created by well-known cryptographer Adi Shamir (the “S” in RSA, one of the first public key cryptosystems), Shamir Backups let users “split up” their backup seeds into several word lists or “shares.” The wallet’s private keys can then be recovered by combining some ... Shamir Backup vs Multisig. Unlike a multisig, the holders of these Shamir shares can’t make remote transactions: all parts derived from a Shamir backup must be registered on the same Trezor Model T.Therefore, all parties must meet in the same room or else send pictures of their 20 or 33 words (which is unrecommended due to the security risks it poses). Adi Shamir’s Secret Sharing is an algorithm that allows participants to share ownership of a secret by distributing shares, which can be thought of as parts of a secret key.In order for someone to gain access to the original secret, a minimum number of shares (the threshold) must be used together.
