16 ms is not noticeable lag for any reasonable application.

One has to limit the design to something that can be completed in 
reasonable time and that offers something that existing solutions 
do not. So there is a need to fix the minimum requirements and 
target that. Either the minimum is a regular screen buffer or it 
is capable shader based hardware.
