I often ask myself what something like this actually means in regard to the other stories my Tibetan teachers tell.

A lot of these "Historical" studies into the Buddha seems to try to make a big deal out of things with very little evidence and make up more and more fantastical claims. I think something similar was proposed by someone in an old Dharmawheel thread but it got shut down pretty quick.
