I agree - and the main issue for performance for me is when the (service) program is called a lot, so that the startup cost is paid for every call of thousands or millions.

Yeah, fighting something odd can best be solved with simple means.

But how expensive is it *really*? I am wondering if it is one of those
things where hardware has progressed to the point where it isn't as
noticeable anymore. Note I am not saying don't program for efficiencies,
but I do think about programmer debugging cryptic issues vs. taking certain
defaults to gard ones self.

Has somebody done some performance tests on this so we have more concrete

Using *NEW adds its own set of problems - mostly in performance - because
it is relatively expensive to start a new AG. It IS an easier way to manage
things, sometimes, but it is probably better to be sure you deallocate all
memory yourself that you have allocated.
