The actual requests get sent from the server backend on the osm dev server
(rails app) and are then transcoded from json to kml before getting passed
on to the user. Unfortunately, the dev servers rails system seems to be
incredibly slow! Even just simply loading the pages takes a long time.

Same thing with OSRM and the other routing backends, which also feel very
slow on that page. Sorry, I should have said, that speed comparisons aren't
realistic. But never-the-less, comparing the output between the routers
should give a valid picture of how they behave.
