Sure. But, unfortunately, it's not trivial to set up some useful
test cases without actually implementing my suggested approach
in several applications first.

you made a fairly strong claim: that "too many dynamic (heap) allocations" are involved in slowing down GTK3, either w.r.t. GTK2 and/or w.r.t. other toolkits.

that seems like a fairly easy thing to test.
