I can see this in super-long deathstreams (Ascension to Heaven?) where you have ~10 seconds of normally-spaced streams before a speed change, but in short streams? No. 3.
Can be done well, can be done horribly wrong. 3^My thoughts
I think people are confusing variable stream spacing with circle stream jumps.Based on this, I will rate a 2.
This is variable stream spacing. Notice that there are no stream jumps.
