If you would like to know my motives, i would like my tablet to lag a little less in the higher of bloons tower defense 5 and some other games. I would also like to be able to underclock to improve battery life.
I just bought my G Pad yesterday and the first thing I did was root it and then install Titanium backup and Greenify, those two apps do wonders to battery life and lag. As for overclock it is as you say we would have to wait for some custom kernel that allows it but from my understanding it is the Gpu and not the Cpu which is the bottleneck.
So yeah for underclocking and to fix some lag you should install Titanium backup and Greenify but be careful on what you uninstall in TB because you don't want to remove some things like for me the Knock-on feature is probably the best thing ever :P
For refernece, I have my Z1 clocked at 0.2Ghz to 1.2Ghz(from 2.2Ghz) all the time unless I am playing a game where I have different "setCpu profiles" for different games, setting the governor as "interactive" or "ondemand" usually makes my Z1 sit at 0.2Ghz when it is in idle-mode.
