I'm confused now. Why would having less acceleration in the lesser modes be a bad thing? If you want to accelerate fast then choose S5 or S6. You want a leisurely drive then choose S1 or S2 or A1, A2, etc.
It also sounds like the actual shift speed is dependent upon throttle position too just like the SMG II was. But, I'm not 100% convinced of this yet. This would make sense: you want fast, you push the throttle pedal farther down so the system shifts faster for you too.
