Would there be any way to actually document this fact?

My problem is that in my world a claim is not to be trusted until there 
are ways of verifying it or that all (reasonable) counterclaims have 
been falsified. Finding a way of demonstrating that classifying actually 
does work (and how much) would be very useful, and actually pretty 

I can imagine looking for natural experiments where the system 
accidentally failed to classify or not in parallel organisations, a bit 
like how the US Army accidentally demonstrated the role of IQ in soldier 
usability due to a clerical error.
