none these days don't process untrusted data and "slowed down much" 
needs to be defined very well and not only by a syntectitc benchmark 
throwing numbers around - if it is not noticeable by a user it don't 
exist and security was, is and always will be a compromise between user 

in other words: leave me in piece with generic benchmarks and things 
faster in theory not look at the time for recovery when machines where 

i ran all network aware services with my own build-overrides with 
-fstack-protector-all long before fedora considered 
-fstack-protector-srtong with *zero* difference for daily workloads as
