I think it's a decent substitute because what you say should happen is generally the opposite of what actually does happen, often for reasons other than ineptitude. But more generally, my wanky counter-point is 'you say all these things as if it's a given they're unequivocally bad and it's not at all obvious to me that they are'. There's an awful lot of room above 16ms.

Dude, Photoshop takes many seconds to start up, and as of the most recent redesign it now often takes multiple seconds just to display the new project menu. And this is not atypical of today's software.

Forget 16ms, I would be happy to get to an order of magnitude slower than that for much of today's software ... it would be a massive increase in human happiness.
