I agree, with one caveat...You need to have defined, measurable criteria for what is "fast enough" BEFORE you do the tests. Defining that sort of thing after you've run your tests is pointless.
It seems like all far too often, if these things aren't defined ahead of time, it doesn't matter what the results are, someone will say "That's not fast enough". So, you define the requirements FIRST, and then work to meet them.
