Thats not how I have ever seen it. CW is very good for very weak signal
working requiring minimum equipment for maximum readability under weak
signal conditions.

Amateur Radio is not the Internet, the signalling speed is often far less
important than making a minimal contact. That is the essence of DX work
on most bands. EME is very power inefficient, so what ?
