IMHO it takes the same lenght of amount of time if Sigil has to open such a long html file and it gives more memory problems with the program then a bunch of short html files.
Also search sakes much longer in such long files,and I still have to open every epub because it is never the way I want it..Since i have still some old Sony readers it is become a habit to split them.
I don't think they are mandatory by an epub specification but they do give problems in other reader so I edit them,and with every book I have some thoughts you don't want to have so near Christmas about those ebook "engineers" that think every book has to be a website and all the looks and feels of the original book including all those idiot margins, color values....
Well, I totally agree with the last part of your rant, but I haven't had the same experiences regarding processing speed. Files shouldn't be monster large, but you shouldn't have a monster number of files either. I will never forget the King James Bible I once bought, which had a file for every single chapter. It only became usable after I had merged the files to a much smaller number. So I think there is something like a Golden Mean, and with a very large number of chapters it isn't necessarily a file for each chapter.
