It would benefit only programmers working in that specific domain or a related application. To appeal to a larger audience we must address the performance issues that spread across programming domains and are likely to appear in a random application, without making any assumptions about the problem domain.

Although manifestations of performance issues are infinite, they may be classified into a finite set of types. Each type represents a set of equivalent performance bugs. They may look different on the surface, but they are essentially the same. As an example, take redundant computations, ...
