Frankly, I find this unconvincing. In how many real world applications will you really 'thousands of CALayers' along with all the extra flexibility they provide? I assume there will be very few.

Also: can you put numbers behind your claim of CA's great performance? My attempts to draw things using CALayers always ended up feeling sluggish compared to directly drawing my NSView.

Obviously you want to avoid such sluggishness when doing UI work. Which somewhat restricts the useful areas of CA.
