I understand your feeling about maintaining the tradition and the lack of consistency from college to pro to rec, but as you state a desire to speed up the game, playing a let DOES speed up a game.
Calling service lets slows the game down in at least 3 ways (even if they are minor delays, they are none-the-less delays):
-the discussion if there was or wasn't a let
-the retrieval of the ball (if it landed in and has to be replayed)
-a potential 3rd or 4rth serve for a single point (if it/they landed in and have to be replayed)
