The devs have even stated on a couple of bugs that they are not likely to be fixed before release, so we are starting to get a sense of what the cut-off line is.

Could be wrong, of course, it's just an impression, but the frequent answer I read - even by L&L staff not only by other users like you - to "check changelog and evaluate by yourself" instead to clarify which parts of the beta version still need polishing and which are ok, let me think there wasn't by no one a precise idea about the real stage of the software or the reliability of the code.

My 2011 Mac does not scream, even with an SSD-ectomy. I frequently do, however, waiting for slow OS updates.
But don't let little things like facts get in the way of your little rant...

Cool story. Did you write that in Scrivener for Windows 3 beta?

Scrivener is designed to make very efficient use of whatever resources are available to it. That's one of the benefits of the Scrivener approach of breaking a project into smaller chunks: Scrivener only has to load whatever you're actually editing. And the actual editing is just manipulating text -- which is very fast -- rather than the real time page layout tasks that something like Word has to do.
The most demanding tasks in Scrivener are Compiling complex documents, building a large Scrivenings session, and doing a ZIP backup of a large project. As you approach the limits of whatever hardware you're using, you're likely to see performance issues in these tasks first.
This means that Scrivener itself will run on a lot of less-than-current hardware, provided it supports a Scrivener-compatible operating system.
