In the example you gave (Elbox/Winner Zorro IV) you can clearly see how can you drive some Zorro cards way beyond the Amiga limits.

You also forgot to mention the MacroSystem DraCo which uses an even much faster Zorro II implementation, and sports its own customized implementation of a faster Zorro like bus called DraCo Direct32, which is essentially a 68040 bus with autoconfig. This DraCo Direct 32 bus gives a performance of an additional 10MB/s bandwith over what Zorro III can deliver, in the same connector with a two layer pcb. And all of this without any Amiga chipset dependency.
