In the 4.6 model -- even with the backport url_alias patch -- I altered
drupal_lookup_path() to disallow any lookups that didn't come from path

Since I set the rules for that site, it meant paths were only checked if:

1) $path == 'taxonomy/%'
2) $_GET['q'] == $path

This prevented the menu, node links, comment links, et. al. from being
processed.  It cut path lookups from 200+ to under 10 for node page views.

Now this isn't a universal solution, but it may suggest a plan.

Any thoughts here?
