contouring accuracy of highspeed machining

RP is challenging CNC, but has yet to match the precision of CNC.
CNC's are moving to higher speed machining. I'm interested in
hearing about experiences with high speed (light cut) contour
machining. Specifically:
- contouring feedrates
- part precision
the brochures I've seen talk about positioning error but don't
say much about contouring accuracy.
