True, alienbogey.
The weight isn't a very important factor for speed and the unaeroness doesn't matter much at moderate speeds.
Unless one is constantly climbing huge amounts, a suspension fork could even make one faster on bumpy roads.
Without suspension large potholes and big bumps will slow a bike down a lot more compared to with suspension.
For nice perfectly flat tarmac roads there is obviously no need for it.
