I agree. I think the speed argument is becoming a little oversimplistic. The problem usually isn't speed as much as folks not spending that time on the right items. No one would complain if you took 2 more days to build a feature that you felt was absolutely key for your product; but everyone would complain if you always felt rounded corners were super critical or you always feel every feature is critical.

Note that you don't always have to be always right(meaning that feature you thought was really needed does not have to take off) but you do need to constantly calibrate your judgement so you get a feel for the type of intensity any given problem requires.
