Add to those some unknown number of targeted planes which escaped the dogfight only to crash or crash-land on the way home due to damage or wounds sustained, but never claimed by anyone. Hell, we still can't agree on who killed Richtofen!

Certainly - why check it out when you can simply guess. Definitely the decision process of a seasoned historian, which you claim to be.
You might want to read the instructions posted by TSA for this thread Blutarski:
"You have ten seconds. No research, no worrying about being right/wrong--just what is the first name that pops into your head. If you want to "reserve the right"* to elaborate on your response later, please follow you two-word answer with an asterisk thus: Joe Blow*
Who was the top-scoring allied air ace of World War I? "
Hence the guesses by people.

No worries, ADP. We're cool.
