Actually I think using object would be more appropriate.

Even more appropriate would be using the new cron system to keep the feeds up to date and never having the dashboard page itself load them, just load the cached object out of the database.

While I don't know the WP cron system properly, it sounds as though you suggest that each site pulls the feeds periodically. Wouldn't that raise the load on the local server and the servers holding the (remote) feeds significantly? All for a mere gain in terms of speed? Some Web-based feed readers have the tendency to do this, but it's expensive.

Best wishes,
