It seems to me that what gets lost in these "speed" arguments is the prep that goes into the demo, which has wow'ed folks.

In order to move around big chunks in X with a lot of connected clips, you first have to adjust where the clips are actually connected, otherwise they won't travel along correctly. This stage is usually skipped in the demo, because it was prepped beforehand. As a result, the process looks faster than it actually is.

I would argue that to do the equivalent function in a track-based NLE takes more keystrokes, but isn't inherently slower. I'm not accounting for which one a given editor might perceive as more "fun". Just that on face value, the end result will be about the same from start to finish.
