Your argument makes sense, for people using powerful machines.
I have a slow one, by today's standards, and I don't think it is
likely I will get a faster one (or multicore) for years if ever.
Many free software activists use the same machine for the same reason.

Meanwhile, the big problem of making Emacs work with true parallelism
is not in the general mechanisms.  It is in all the code that knows
it can only be interrupted due to an error or where it says QUIT.
If you want to test the feasibility of real parallelism, that's what
you need to work on.
