Well, assuming my intuitions about how burst/cburst ameliorate the issue, we might simply have to say accept an additional 5ms delay/jitter to make it perform better. It is basically the same batching approach that always helps throughput of a cyclic process can not be repeated often enough, simply do more per iteration...
