(1) Have you measured it?  What results did you get?
(2) You've still not identified a program which hardcodes xterm's path
(3) The one example you gave -- mutt -- is bogus:
	(a) it doesn't call xterm (which you already pointed out), and
	(b) it's trivial to use relative paths (or arbitrary executables),
	    just edit /etc/Muttrc

At the moment I'm having a hard time believing you're trying to solve
a real problem.
