I've always operated under the thought that slow should be as effective as fast.

Though, in real life, slow is unlikely. "Please wait, I'm going to do something... no no, don't hit me just yet". For most cases, I think slow is for the dojo -- but I still believe you can/need to eliminate the holes and practice good shodo-o-seisu (control the first move) throughout.
