Scoring artifact? --- 571

I'm not sure if any of the other top scorers on puzzle #571 are seeing this, but I am finding that saturating this helix with aromatics is producing the highest scores.
I doubt highly that a real-life helix could contain so many tryptophans, tyrosines, and phenylalanines, yet remain a stable structure. A sheet, perhaps, but not a helix.
We've seen this scoring "bug", before. Is it going to be helpful to give the research lab a designed protein that may unwind before it does any good?
