The description of this A005842 is

"Smallest square that contains all squares of side 1, .. , n"

There is no indication anywhere of whether these are proven values, or 
"best currently known" values.

It would be really useful if this kind of information were incorporated 
into the entries so that viewers know the boundaries between knowledge 
and research problem...

Should there be an explicit *required field* for this information? I 
thought that originally Neil only wanted sequences of proven values, 
but obviously many sequences violate this...
