When I started in prime searching in 2007, the big push was to get all of the annoying base 2 n=333333 (~100k digits) primes knocked out of the top 5000. I personally still find fixed n searches annoying. The n=1000000 and n=1290000 primes clog up the top 5000 and knock off "good" primes. They also skew the long term curves of the rising 5000th place prime.
