This makes the point so simply that I may just be inclined to adopt it.
_If_ we can develop it a little.

Metcalfe and Moore have simple metrics at the heart of their laws; you
know, things that sit comfortably on a graph, like squaring and eighteen
months. Can we get Loosemore to this point? I doubt that there are
agreed measures for intolerance, so we need to work on an agreed and
measurable symptom of intolerance. In terms of speed we need to think
absolute. How about an axis that holds a progression towards subliminal
delay ( this stuff will be familiar to this audience:
http://www.useit.com/papers/responsetime.html ).

Symptoms of intolerance... now there's a can of worms.....

Instantaneous delivery is so far away that this could be a useful tool
in the meantime.

Now would be a good time, Tom, to admit it if it's not an original.

well, i'm sat here on a 1.5 Mbps always on flat fee cable modem
into my living room, and i still get frustrated as hell with the same
sloppy bloated sites that pissed me off over dial up (all those fugging
images cost www.britishmidland.co.uk my business)

let's call it loosemore's law: intolerence of delay increases
proportionally with speed of connection....
