I certainly don't want to distract you from rendering performance, but
as long as you have your head in the selection indication code I wonder
if this might become possible in v9:
Selection Handles: Make selection border optional
The dashed border around selected controls certainly makes their
selected state clear, but it also obscures the object's own border,
sometimes making it difficult to visualize placement or changes to
border treatments until I deselect it.
I kinda liked how it used to be, where the only indicators added to a
selected object were the interactive handles, leaving the rest of the
object visibly the same so we could evaluate changes made to it as we
were making them.
But I recognize the change to alter the border treatment on selection
was probably made for a reason, so if that reason is still important
maybe that could become optional?
