The increase in redshift with distance is still not set however.
It may be one of the galaxies with the largest redshift, but its distance and age curve has not been definitely set.
A look @ the math shows that it is an exponential curve but it is only checkable in the flat bit at the long term runout of the curve so the increase in redshift with time may still be a linear (flat universe) phenomenon rather then the math to age result usually labelled.
Problem with a flat universe age is that it may be far older then it has been listed as (main problem is that we may only see a small part of it).
The increasing numbers of very highly reddened galaxies are going to be useful in working out the age with distance debate so a rogues gallery of the objects may be very useful to distinguish between the big bang (from a small religiously appointed dot), and the Membrane (as in cypress hill) therories. Both of which have followers and a difficulty of proof.
