Gosh, a couple os cents on a $1k+ device wouldn't actually price them out of the market. And given the bandwidth between the cintroller and the flash, a millisecond would be all the time in the world.
I use a circuit with 5 ultracapacitors with each Raspberry Pis on my boat. When tbe DC drops to 9 volts, a power monitoring app gets notified. It starts a 30 second count down to see if power comes back. If not, it starts and orderly shutdown with about a minute of power remaining. Given that a flash controller draws about a zillionth of an RPi and the bandwidth from the controller to the SSD's flash if probably 10K times the RPi's cheap micro SD card, why wouldn't Intel blow an extra dime (at the outside)?
My guess is that they did but don't want folks to bank on it for reasons more to do with marketing, legal, or host OS driver issues.
I think a database dependent on storage speed is silly in this day and age, but I were trying to squeeze the last drop of performance, I'd look a lot further. But even a modern DB needs a place to flush a serial log prior to commit to keep bean counters happy, so this is well worth pursuing.
