These are my thoughts as well, but still we design for the least capability

4-5 seconds for above the fold content is _not_ ok. It's also _not_
normal. The example I used above was under load, throttled to a 1mbit/s
connection. We're under heavy load these past few days, so don't judge the
page performance right now. After some slight abatement recently I was
seeing 1-2 seconds for atf content, and 3-4 seconds for complete page load.
ymmv, but we haven't even started optimizing things yet.
