Um, er, no, a 680 mhz 128MB wireless router caches dns traffic, routes 500+Mbit streams, does a bit of AQM, and does various other things just fine without melting down. Since most the time it's running a heck of a lot slower than that, caching DNS locally is a win.
Secondly, you still can (and should) use the upstream provider as a forwarder DNS, for example, comcast's DNSSEC servers are usually less than 10 ms away. But in the home, your DNS server is .02ms away.
