So far these ground-based detections of TTV in hot Jupiters don't seem to hold up very well...

Would be nice to also have, e.g. RV detection as well.

Waste of time why not to seek transits of planets around nearby stars or obtain mass more important kepler planets .It is not very impressive to find another hot sub saturn
