52ms transmitter to receiver latency
.12ms servo latency
equals 152.12ms total latency for the servo to move to its full travel

That 52 ms could be cut down to 10 to 20ms and improve the total response time by up to 28% right (assuming 10ms)? Yes, people will have longer latency than the electronics. But the electronics contribute to the total response time, and in the case of the A9 it could be improved.
You have a problem with your calculation. The servo speed is .12seconds or 120MS that needs to be added to this calculation.

100ms human reaction time (not a realistic time more like 250ms)
52ms transmitter to receiver latency
120ms or .12seconds servo latency
equals 270ms total latency for the servo to move to its full travel

total of 270ms for the servo to move to it's full travel. Reduce this be 30ms is about 11% difference in the very best case. An amount not noticeable.
