That's a fairly nebulous description no?

I could make my front very very stiff and still have the rear stiffer. The faster you ride the stiffer you need your suspension to be to a point, or if nothing else you need more bottoming resistance.

I can tell you that the 950 does not have enough bottoming resistance that's one of the biggest reasons everyone thinks the front rim is so soft... Even small drop offs or medium size rocks can blow the bike through the travel and good luck getting any air time with out landing with the lovely clunk.
