Well, I'm doing a little experiment on the leaf hints and will report back. I just replaced my 12366-person tree with a 527-person tree connected to my DNA results. The larger tree had a few speculative ancestors that are excluded from the smaller tree, but the main difference between the two is that the smaller one has only ancestors; no cousins, aunts, or uncles of any degree. First report: I had 181 leaf hints when I switched trees. I now have exactly ONE! Eliminating the iffy ancestors should have resulted in a loss of 10-20 matches at the most. We'll see what happens in the future. :)
