In a video interview, Murray Gell-Mann states (at 40 seconds)

"I have wondered all this time, and I still wonder, whether the straightness of those [Regge] trajectories, and the accuracy of the first-order mass formula for [flavor] $SU(3)$, aren't somehow related to each other. Both are a little bit surprising."

Has this question been addressed, anywhere in the physics literature?
