Very well reasoned. I see lots of developers obsessing over pointless optimizations. I think it is a sign of experience when a developer learns to trust the platform. An example I've seen recently is someone going to great lengths to avoid disk accesses to a relatively small file with a complicated caching algorithm, completely ignoring the fact that Windows had already cached the entire file for him. He no-op'd out the caching code and, surprise! Same performance ;-)
