Google now owns DoubleClick.

Since 2007, yes. But that was not the question ;)

I know, but wasn't it integrated into the Adsense program ?

No, Ad Exchange is something totally different from AdSense.

I tend to be a status bar watcher, at the bottom of Firefox pages.
One thing that has jumped out at me, is the number of times I see "waiting for ads.doubleclick" or what ever it is. This has caused me to form an opinion that doubleclick is very slowwww. Slower than anything else that I have observed, because I keep seeing it. Most "waiting for" status updates whiz by so fast you can't read them. Not so for doubleclick. Check it out - put your eyes on your status bar just before each click, and see what it says.
For me in this case, since perception is reality, I have no interest in doubleclick whatsoever. Especially with the recent admonitions from Google Search about page loading speed.

Here is a confirmation that nothing has been done about this -

Google introduced asynchonous Google Publisher Tags on 9/25/11
Try these and see if it changes speed ;)
On my site:
1695 ms to render page
693 ms to fetch ads
9 ms to render ads

In response to the original question: it seems that Adsense publishers already benefit from Ad Exchange through the certified ad network
|Google AdSense publishers: |
• Have their ad space available to certified ad networks in the Ad Exchange. This means more quality display advertisers competing for their ad space and higher returns. AdSense publishers get the benefit of this through their AdSense interface, without having to log in to the Ad Exchange itself.
As for page loading speed, does anybody know whether Google considers total loading time to include any asynchronous parts, or is it just the time that it takes to start rendering the page so that it is readable?

Yes, but it is a difference between using certified Ad Networks in AdSense and having access to the Ad Exchange.
There is a lot more money in being part of Ad Exchange.
However you somewhat need to be a premium publisher (meaning having several million Ad Impressions) to be allowed into Ad Exchange.
I don't mean being an AdSense Premium Publisher but still you need a lot of Ad Impressions

Between 5-10 million page views per month is the requirement. DFP SB works perfectly for this.

Yeah I thought it might be something like this.
To bad I am not in that league yet
