And your intuition might be (mine was) that removing those small relays really harms diversity (and thus anonymity), but actually, Tor's load balancing and path selection means those relays are very rarely chosen anyway, so they don't contribute much to the anonymity the Tor network can provide.
??? I don't regularly check the relays & bandwidth in my Tor connection, but when I do, it's as common than not to see at least one relay w/ < 10 MB/s (you used mega bit, not mega byte).

I don't look at them all the time during sessions, but when I randomly check, probably 1/2 the time one relay is < 10 MB/s. Could it be a fluke that I just happen to check at times when low bandwidth relays happen to be selected?
