You chose not to respond to my main substantive point, which was that vindication =/= proof. Evidence in favor of the conjecture is hardly news. After all, the original conjecture was based on at least some evidence, so you are approximately 270 years too late. And since n(N), the number of ways one can partition N into primes, is not monotonic*, you cannot rule out a situation where N > 2 and n(N) = 0.
* n(8) = n(12) = 1, but n(10) = 2.
