This is a very interesting site as among other things the majority of these remains were relocated to this location hundreds of years after the fact in the Saite period. Which partly helped to expose a trend of this period of royal burials being moved and buried in different tombs only to be reburied again elsewhere. We can only imagine the totality of how the Saite period essentially re-wrote history by their revisionist activities often amounting to outright theft.

Regardless, I fail to see how this would apply to the pyramid problem as this was nothing planned for by the pharaoh let alone wished for to facilitate their journey to the afterlife. They could not plan for later dynasties hundreds if not thousands of years after the fact to continually cart their remains and stuff around to protect against robbers. They would have planned on their protection from the getgo which would have been of paramount importance given they would have known full well if left in the pyramid would be desecrated almost as soon as the door was closed.

Fair enough. Sounds reasonable to me.
