It's a page rendering issue definitely. So it doesn't affect anonymous reading
(except immediately after an edit is saved).
What many editors don't appreciate is that some of the options in user
preferences require that the page be re-rendered just for them (unless someone
with an identical option set has already loaded it since the last edit). This
has the effect that viewing complex pages can appear to be slow for logged-in
editors. However, it won't generally appear that way to logged-out editors.
Rewiring the parser caching scheme is probably the most practical approach to
helping improve the user experience around complex pages. Of course that
effort is orthogonal to the question of how to improve the templates
In addition to that, many of the programmers tend to feel we should stop
messing around the edges of template and parser function syntax and design a
template alternative that deals more naturally with programmatic elements
(including for loops, variable assignments, etc.) and has a syntax that isn't
totally insane. However, redesigning template programming (or more likely
providing a better alternative) is a massive problem, so there hasn't been a
lot of progress.
