Yes, comparing specs do not work well with Roland vs others as they went their own way doing stuff. Even their polyphony is a bit different beasts as the supernatural engine eats 4 poly per single key pressed.
Indeed even my PX860 does emulate piano keyboard more, but it doesn't mean it is more pleasure to play. The roland is what a good keyboard in workstation should be IMHO and that doesn't mean copy accoustic piano keyboard to the Z. After all 90% of the sounds are non piano related.

I just did a quick test with my Roland and Casio. The Roland need just a little key return to repeat note. Casio needs more key to return until you can get another sound of it so I believe that Roland would be superior for quick repeats. Also what could people surprise at first on the roland could be the escapement that may feel as if there is higher resistance on the way down, with the little release at the bottom of a stroke. Maybe that's why they feel deceived as if the quick repeats need to go above the escapement bump, and that gives impression of "slow" keyboard, but it isn't so in practical terms, quite opposite, the escapement really does not affect the sensors, it is just for the feel.

That's consistent with what I posted above, about quick repetitions on the Roland vs. Casio. Again, see http://forum.pianoworld.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/2629173/Re:_Recommend_a_Lightweight_DP.html#Post2629173
