COMMENTS
Knowing a(n) <= (prime(n))^4 would yield an infinity of twin primes (in fact it is sufficient if this inequality holds for an arbitrary infinite subsequence k = k_n). See the Shevelev link, Section 17, Corollary 6.
Of course, (p_n)^4/A002110(n) is very small, but remember that sequence k_n could have arbitrary fast growth, for example, as (A002110(n)/(p_n)^4)^n. - Vladimir Shevelev, Jul 24 2014
