So we do agree, then. It is only the practice (synchronization and block-chain size), and not any issue with the theory of operation, which leads to low rate of block generation. If synchronization and the size of the block-chain were not significant factors then the rate at which blocks are generated could be arbitrarily high without impacting the security of the system.

Generally speaking, yes. There might be other technical issues that I'm not aware of, but we do agree.
