You are right: If you are optimizing an entry page same page loaded as follow up later in the journey won't become slower (it will probably become faster, too). So, if you are doing some ad hoc tests to find out where to start with optimizations you are probably right with your suggestion not to complicate the scripts too much.

As a developer of OpenSpeedMonitor I mostly think of synthetic measurements as a continuous monitoring rather than single ad hoc tests. To get a view of the overall performance of a whole web application we recommend to use scripts for the most common of your customer journeys. These should contain your most important entry pages as entry pages. Same applies for follow up pages.

What I should add is that we use this WebPagetest fork with wpt server and agents capable of multistep measurements. So if we use scripts for a whole customer journey we measure all the single pages. No preceding, warm up page is loaded just to warm the cache. All loaded pages get measured. Here you can see an example where we measure a complete journey on a Nexus smartphone.

In OpenSpeedMonitor you can also build an index to represent the overall performance of your application or single page types of it. You can weight the measurements of each page type differently within this index. So if, for example, your homepage gets visited as an entry page in 60 percent of your real world page impressions you can represent that 60/40 distribution in your page weights. For another page type the distribution entry page/follow up might be totally different.
