You're correct, however note that 2.3/2.4 fixes the lock on the javascript interpreter with the move to V8 as the default engine.

I noted v8 in my comment; it won't be a panacea. It certainly doesn't fix the encoding/decoding overhead of BSON<->JavaScript, but the JIT and multithreading will help in other areas.

Group still will not become sharding-capable with v8, either.
