No because we are dealing in tiny ms here that is still in the acceptable range. If upstreams x and y are serving requests in 3ms, but z is serving them in 50ms, I don't want z off line because that is still acceptable and better than having the box offline. However for maximum performance I'd rather 'fair' send requests only to x and y, occassinoally checking z to see if it comes back in line with response times of x.
