It would be theoretically good also for reliability.
    Totally agree (as I also did in the past). Should be possible to spec. it in the rules.
    Also, it might even be possible not to have it running all the time when off-throttle. A suitably large electric motor could be able to spin up the turbo really quick as a reaction to throttle input, minimizing any delay.

    A lot for sure. But can't say exactly, as it depends on stage characteristics, on car (turbo spool, etc), on mapping, conditions, driver, etc.
