Well, the 2D is already way faster. Also 2D does profit from 3D thansk to QML and QGraphicsview plus QML allows way greater customizing. The only thing missing in 2D are the compiz-like 3D-effects but then you can still add compiz on top of the 2D unity or maybe even switch the WM to e.g. KWin. Such a combination would rock the house.
