I have to agree with Daniele here. I don't use Emacs for writing such
documents, nor would having variable width support by itself grant all the
other features such users have come to expect from modern Word Processors.

Time spent on a better GC could help the *overall* user experience, in the
form of generally better latency, even if no one would be able to point to the
GC as the reason for their better experience with Emacs.
