Not exactly scientific but you must have had some fun doing the tests. While I can't argue against your figures I would point out that in the real world your tests only go to show that while WEP encryption may offer a decrease in the absolute performance of a wireless network, in terms of throughput, the available speeds are still massively faster then your available ADSL circuit bandwidth. The effect on your system in the real world will be all but negligible if your simply using your router as an Internet gateway.
