While were at it W3TTT and KC8Y would you also please advocate for a speed limit on data modes? FT8...

EEE - If you want to copy packet or PSK by EAR, then, yes - I would want the sender to go slowish.  However, PSK, FT8 and other data modes are interpreted by COMPUTER, so like I said, I type at 70+ words per minute and if I wanted to go fast, it would be on a computer. 

However, if you want "be that way", go ahead.  Only thing, if I hear you and come back to your CQ at my speed, will you slow down?

I will come back to any CW CQ at any speed with DE W3TTT QRS PSE.  If the other OP answers, and slows down, good,  otherwise, I spin the big knob. 

Sorta like asking a girl if she wants to kiss, before you go ahead and kiss her.  Sorta. I would like people to send CQ at 12 wpm, then after contact is made ask if QRQ?  Kiss then ask, or ask and then kiss?

I've heard the phrase "Life's too short for QRP"... is there a corollary "Life's too short for slow code"?

The good thing is, slow code is temporary.  It's the only thing you lose by using it.

Without CW, it's just CB.
