Will Page Speed become A PR Factor?

SpeedometerRecently I got an email from webpronews about Google might consider page speed a ranking factor in 2010. We all know how Google wants to make the web faster for all of us and it's a great idea to reward those websites or blogs that optimized their page loading time. Who wouldn't want that to happen? It would benefit both the visitors/readers and webmasters/bloggers. For me it's another ball game that I would like to pay attention and play. A video from webpronews, reporter Mike Mcdonald interviewed Google's Matt Cutt's regarding the issue.
