I don't know about that method. The reason is
it seems to favor your suggestion. And not by
a little! Here are the results in seconds for
10 000 runs in a buffer of 55 lines:

    ;; point-at-final-line-3   0.08
    ;; point-at-final-line-2   0.38
    ;; point-at-final-line-1   0.55

The entire code yanked:
