Performance Ratings for REs
It would be nice to have a standard way that REs could be classified or rated based on their CPU usage. I'm not sure I'm phrasing this exactly how I want to but in general it would be nice to know how much of a relative impact an RE would make on a system. This could help folks make more practical decisions based on their system and reduce RE "remorse".
Additionally this may encourage developers to optimize their code if it will clearly be "rated". I understand that this is difficult as it really depends on features utilized in a specific preset. Perhaps there is a base performance rating and a maximum performance rating. Again, I'm not sure if I'm articulating my point very well but hopefully the intent is bring conveyed.
