Possibly the best way to support a Famous Ancestors feature would be for Ancestry to hire qualified genealogists to build some "Descendants of .." trees for non-living individuals who pass their fame critera (perhaps inclusion in several major almanacs), source those trees well, and then test only for matches between the user's tree or search expression and the professionally built trees.

Whether the number of new users who would be attracted by this feature is sufficient to be worth the resources to construct the well-sourced descendants-of-famous-people trees is a question for marketing research.
