Default volume vs max in deadlift

I'm wondering if the ratio between deadlift volume and max acts as any sort of diagnostic.

My "sorta max" DL is somewhere around 265-270. Today I did 10 sets of 3 at 235 in about 20 minutes. This wasn't a max test by any means; I just wanted to see how long it would take to do 10 triples with comfortable rest periods. Does this mean anything useful? Bodyweight is about 150-155, and I usually only deadlift once every 10-12 days.
