The problem with 3D is that it exercises *completely* different code paths from 2D rendering. So it would be good to do a 3D stress test as well, although that code is not yet available, and it doesn't tell us anything about the performance of the platform when doing Path, Line, Region, or any of the other 2D building blocks.
