Very often people mistakenly treat cost percent in a query plan as a real metric to compare what operator caused a problem. However, this is just an estimate over a model. Now with having extended metrics for plan operators (like ActualElapsedms, ActualCPUms, etc.) it would be very nice to be able to switch to those real metrics in an actual plan to see more realistic picture.
