Yeah... I think the general consensus is (or would be, if people thought
about it) that "mark for edit" would produce wonderful speed for
recursive WC operations, and wouldn't be a hassle when you're using an
editor with a well-integrated svn mode, but would be a horrible pain in
the butt when you aren't.

I think if there were a WC design which made "require mark for edit and
get better performance" a checkout option in some beautiful elegant
fashion without unduly complicating the code base or UI, that would be
the best of both worlds. But that feels a bit blue-sky.
