I like the idea, especially if you did it it as an actual "card", like a school report card

Perhaps the idea of a "score" (e.g., A through F) assigned to each
individual metric that is then combined to produce an "overall score" is
not that bad?  It is not perfect, it hides details, and it cannot please
everyone, but might be useful.

(I personally always want to see the base values and the method to
comupte both the individual and the overall score, so I can assess the
applicability of the score to my requirements.)

How about:

                  Report Card for Little Johnny Rogers (rogers.com)

    Latency:          F  (200ms, where 42 expected for a round-trip to San Francisco)

    Throughput, Up:   B  (16.87 Mb/S where 20 advertised)

    Throughput, Down: A  (182.1 Mb/S where 175 advertised)

    RPM:              D- (23 where 65 expected)


    Overall:          F (Lowest of the above marks)
