Sure there can happen probability distribution close to uniform, in 
which case starting with flat distribution is reasonable ... but 
definitely not always, especially for your data which for many IDs 
mainly consists of zeroes - you don't have to pay with ratio to learn 
that - you can start with a distribution characteristic for a given ID 
instead (and also optimized adaptation rate).
