I'd like to see some data to back that up. In the analysis I've done, both of them spend most of their time waiting for DNS replies, not cranking through analysis steps or talking back and forth with postfix. And if that's true, then combining the two into one won't save you much of anything in the long run; the I/O delay of having to talk to two filters instead of one will be noise compared to how long you're waiting for DNS servers on far away networks to answer your queries for SPF policies and DKIM keys.
