Node quality matter?

I understand that the response time to the network may affect the outcome of the winning of the block.
That is why we try to keep the proof response time within 5 sec or max capped at 30 sec. The network should also play a role on propagating the data.

I define quality = low ping + stable connection

Are there any benefit in “pinging” other connect nodes and find

  1. whether they have high ping or not → if high = disconnect
  2. whether they have up-to-date blockchain or not → if not up-to-date = disconnect
  3. whether they are stable or not → if connect/disconnect = unstable = disconnect

the command chia show -c only provides some information, not the quality per se.
any thought on this or script for loop checking?
