Right, CloudFlare wouldn't help with AJAX calls, for that you would need to move to a distributed hosting service like Google App Engine (http://code.google.com/appengine/).

However, page-load times are important for AJAX apps, even though page-load times don't include AJAX measurements. AJAX apps are typically much larger then static pages, with many more components (Javascript libs, css, ui images, etc). The size and component count all add extra latency.

A slow-loading app will make a bad first impression, and users may leave before any AJAX calls are made.

Note, I still think the page-load times you are seeing are wacky. I gather Google Analytics only measure page-load in a select group of browsers (Chrome, IE9, IE+GoogleToolbar), which could skew the results. The browsers make a weird mix of early adopters (Chrome) and trailing edgers (IE6+GoogleToolbar).
