I don't think so. I think it is because of the 'tables are evil for layout' evangelism, and for the desire to have semantic markup, and avoid the table>tbody>tr>td nesting with tables inside of tables inside of tables inside of tables. The main complaints about 'display: table-cell' we're from people who misunderstood the 'tables are evil for layout' message, not from people who thought it was too slow. I've had to deal with styling other people's extremely table heavy markup, but I never noticed slow speed as a significant result of that (though I don't doubt it would have been somewhat faster otherwise, just not enough to notice).
