Maybe there should be two versions of each benchmark:

 1) an clean, simple, idiomatic version, aka the code we would like to
    write if performance was not an issue.

 2) a super-hand optimized version

This would hopefully show, which benchmarks have the biggest room for
improvement. And, it would provide information to the people working
on the compilers as to what optimizations are actually needed for that
test case.
