I think you forgot the attachment, could you (re)send it?

Personally I would like to see a good performance for the event admin
for Celix, especially because of it's potential target environment
(real-time embedded). So taking that in account and trusting that
Sascha did a good benchmark ;), I think it would be wise for Erik to
first take a look at the knoperfish implementation.
