Even if it is measured, if in such case the benchmark finishes "better" - that is, faster, or say, makes the system freeze for the user for the duration of the test -- it will be considered "win", because the benchmark suite ran faster on that particular system -- whereas a system which ran the benchmark fast, provided good interactive response etc would be considered "loser".

I guess you have some proofs on that "feeling"?
