You can set a Polynomial in several variables, with integer coeficients,
and define upper bounds for its diophantine solvability in nonnegative

This shows clearly that for Th(V_i), oracles will always find simpler
solutions, impossible to reach in i <= i -1, while any "minimal" Cohen
model of ZFC, might also make the polynomial redundant in i <= i - 1...

The best paper I've seen about this unknown limit is:

On a diophantine representation of the predicate of provability. M. Carl.
