I haven't run any benchmarks yet, but use resources from a CIFS server across the Internet, sometimes through a VPNish solution like sshuttle.

I have little doubts that the performance improvement could be quite significant for certain loads, and the risk for a mount point without the "fsc" mount option seems very low (looking at CIFS_MOUNT_FSCACHE in Ubuntu-3.2.0-29.46).

So great to hear that we'll get this option in Quantal.
Any chance it could also be considered for a latter upgrade of precise?
