"Nominal" is pretty meaningless here. A Raptor can and does
transfer over 65MB/s in many typical short transfers and the
high RPM / cost is mostly to reduce latency. Using an
additional bus like firewire limits the benefit.
You try to argue a downgraded transfer for the HDD but then
only the optimal theoretical of a bus speed throughput, "on
paper" transfer for firewire. You haven't actually
benchmarked firewire on externals have you? There is far
more to performance than merely the clock rate of one bus
along the transfer chain.
