It would struggle. One or two people accessing your small-traffic site with modified configs aren't going to bring you down, but this is the sort of thing that can become very problematic to admins if it grows in popularity.

And really, that .03 seconds that you you really need that? Perhaps a better ISP would be a more considerate solution.
Didn't the groove start going to sluggish hell when all the pro firefox threads started popping up?
