+1.  This was yet another thing you beat me to discussing (and I'm glad you did.)

OTOH, couldn't caching (and/or) pre-rendering solve those performance problems?

In the case of pre-rendering, couldn't we offer as an option to story post both pre and post rendered; pre-rendered for editing and post rendered for serving?
