You haven't addressed my point, which is that you were only testing
workloads for which your changed algorithm would improve the results.
What you haven't done is shown how other workloads would be negatively
affected.

Once you do that, we can make a decision about whether to improve your
workload by X% and penalise that other workload by Y%.
