You want acceleration is a certain range - too low is as bad as too high. "slower the better acceleration" is a myth.

I agree that an accelerometer would be useful input for maintaining optimal acceleration rates.

I suggest that car manufacturers:

1) allow the cruise control "resume" button to work from a standing stop.
2) tweak the resume to maintain optimal acceleration
