While I don't know the WP cron system properly, it sounds as though you
suggest that each site pulls the feeds periodically. Wouldn't that raise
the load on the local server and the servers holding the (remote) feeds
significantly? All for a mere gain in terms of speed? Some Web-based feed
readers have the tendency to do this, but it's expensive.
