That wont help the critical first impression phase.. before
application usage patterns are established and people are feeling out
the release.  And to be more blunt about it.. it won't help first
impression from the reviewers who run a distro just long enough to
figure what they like and don't like about it and want to get their
review in within the first week of a release.
How many people end up relying on the first impression of others to
form their own impressions?  Adaptive methods that only help boot
speeds after multiple reboots with extended usage pattern trending
isn't really going to impact the impression people have one damn bit.

And it wont help livecds where state information is lost between reboots.
