Great article, I agree 100%. In my experience, as a web developer, the simplicity of the software almost always outweighs the performance trade off. I'm a huge advocate of writing clean, flexible code and addressing performance issues if/when they come up at their bottlenecks. I see this as a "best of both worlds" approach - you get code that's easy to refactor when the time comes while avoiding speculation about performance and micro-optimizations.
