Mozilla's plan is to integrate the two engines sometime in September, and they know they will not be "fast" until that integration work is done, and they have an enumerated list of issues to tackle to get to that point, which is how they are able to predict when the performance improving integration work will complete. That's pretty quantified - even has a schedule.
