Cloud computing in relation to the CAP theorem

The CAP Theorem states that it is impossible for a distributed computer system to simultaneously provide all three of the following guarantees: consistency, availability and partition tolerance. However, client interaction with distributed system also has a measurable velocity and latency. My thought is that cloud computing has a potential to bring node synchronization time below a client interaction time and will enabling a new perspective on a distributed systems design.
