At the present time,

I'd agree with Jim

1.) the book is not marked as stable yet - so things will change and 
maintaining sbu's would be pointless
2.) the build process is different and as Jim said sbu's won't be very 
3.) if its that important to the individual user they can always bench 
mark their own site.

As a general rule of thumb anyone who is cross-building is LFS aware so 
knows how to make a rough estimate of their own system.
