Fair observation, however there is a reasonable data set to test the idea - the Russian lab data I found a while back provides data for 128 scopes using the same setup. Sure there's some scatter in the plot of strehl vs P-V but the correlation is useful. RMS is as expected since the Strehl is calculated off the same data set.

That the lines don't cross the strehl axis at 1.0 suggests limitations on their equipments accuracy with small errors.
