Define 'suggestions'. What I get are a set of piece values from which
you can accurately predict how good your winning chances are, all other
thing being equal or unknown. If other (positional) features are known,
you can factor those in in the same way.

This is by definition what piece values are meant to do. If the
'classical' system does 'something else', because it was obtained in
another way, they are simply no piece values.
