From TFA:

    Typing should alternate between the hands for greater speed and comfort



Right, I saw that it was a goal, but when I clicked on the source it was just a link to the colemak advocacy wiki, which seems about as biased as I am towards Dvorak :)

I did find this page[1] on the wiki, and it appears that Colemak does way better than QWERTY, and worse than Dvorak. However, this was a test devised by a Dvorak advocate.. so it may be biased as well.
