I agree with you and would add the following:
Even if a net is low speed, such as a reset might
be by virtue of it's driving edge rate and frequency,
it still might end up being a high speed net by virtue
of being coupled into one. I have seen more system
problems due to crosstalk induced noise in resets
and quasi-static nets with weak pullups.
In my world, everything requires consideration of
being "high speed" unless proven otherwise.
