If one or a few work units gets stuck on a host and the rest of the session is completely rendered, isn't it a good idea to send those work units to another, perhaps faster, hosts?

That's more or less done automatically anyway.
If workunits do not return from a host and go over the deadline another replicated wu will be sent out.

Agreed! However i guess it comes down to everyone's help counts regardless of what spec system you have...
