NZAA Sequencing

The last three or four times I have been into NZAA the sequencing has involved a lot of ¨speed up....slow down....turn left ....¨etc etc . It seems that the latest STAR's are quite prescriptive with heights and speeds yet they are not used to any great effect.
I have two questions for anyone involved in the Air Traffic System there;
1/ Do you think the designers were being a bit optimistic when they required a 10 knot speed reduction from 250 to 240 about 30 miles from touch down?
2/ Why don't you just give everyone a required time at Aradi or Basiv or Jabba or similar and let them sort out the profile and speed to achieve that?
