I think a small range would be adequate - look at the number sizes and
go 0-100 or 0-1000 as appropriate.

Thinking of naming, is it 'relative_throughput' ?

However, is it also going to be possible to extend this target to measure the
the actual throughput?  If we did that, would we use a special value to 
indicate it or add a new table parameter and keep the 'perf' ones as a
manual adjustment factor applied on top of the calculated one?
