See bug 572134 for some discussion, bug 572134 comment 43 in particular.

Remoting ConvertPoint incurs a tremendous overhead compared to what its actual impl probably does.  It would be worthwhile to measure perf with and without a subprocess-local impl of ConvertPoint, might be an easy win there.
Could also check to see what Chromium does.
I think it might be a reasonable assumption that the cost of calling convertpoint in the local process is negligible. Perhaps measure the difference by simply commenting out the convertpoint rpc message. If we don't get any performance win then this isn't worth implementing.
