As far as considering draw cycles is concerned this is exactly how two bows should be compared. The faster bow will normally have a harsher draw at a given draw weight, but take that same bow and turn it down to where the speed is the same as a slower bow and that draw cycle may not seem near as harsh.
Of course there are always the other things like how the grip feels, how the bow balances, and such.
