Will he? Aral was a general, a regent and a long-time prime minister, 
very public offices, and he made history while in them.

Miles' most glorious achievements are classified, and therefore won't 
make him famous.

As far as the public knows, he had an undistinguished military career as 
a low-rank courier, and then he was given a sinecure job as an auditor.

Sure an auditor has a lot of power, but so does the chairman of the fed. 
How many chairmen of the fed can you name without looking it up?

We know Miles was a lot more, but most of that stuff is not public, at all.
