Maybe it's an idea to add a line or table to the final results page with a calculated (rough) estimated load time for the other line speeds. I'm sure you have enough data on the line speeds to make some pretty close estimate calculations. Even when people just tend to test only on speed, the default or not, you still make them aware in the overview of the (estimated) other line speed load time.

Adding 'warning colors' for page load times higher than whatever currently 'the golden rule' is, might get that 4+MB warning and awareness job done better. I know from my experience with customers, that most people are very motivated to get most of those colors on the WPT page as green as possible, even in the EU, where F->A doesn't tell them that much (We're more 1->10 kinda people Wink )
