It could be resolved internally though hidden buffers and/or asynchronous writing to the cards I'd suspect.. but this is neither here nor there since it isn't doing that.
Yes, technically can be improved, but not reduced to zero. In fact, ultimately, when the buffer is full, the fastest transfer rate is the lowest rate in the chain, which ultimately is the SD card. What Pentax could have implemented is parallel writing of different photos into the two SD cards (at the moment, if you select the two SD cards, the camera does not take advantage of it; it's basically the same speed as using one SD card).

I don't want to get into the details of explaining to you my purposes because then you'll make it into a debate.
Ok, not problem.
