I like that idea...

Then it’s how to measure it. 1 / latency where latency is what…the maximum value you’ll see considering all traffic as besteffort at a fixed number of concurrent flows? Otherwise it would have do be expressed differently for different traffic classes, which is probably already too complicated for most people.

Food for thought, I know this is the opposite direction, but I’ve always liked in Europe how car “mileage” is expressed as consumption (L/100km) instead of efficiency (miles/gallon). Yes, then a lower number is better, but it’s easier to calculate how much gas you’ll use for a given trip.
