Having lighter strings does help you play faster, but when you couple that with a scalloped fretboard, they kind of cancel each other out IMO; it takes a LOT of practice to play a scalloped fretboard like it's a normal fretboard, and it'll be that much harder if you have really, really light strings.
I'd recommend just really low action and light strings, and possibly a fret dressing, but definitely nothing more than that.
Very old stage rig
Mourn not the dead
that in the cool earth lie...
But rather mourn the apathetic throng
the cowed and the meek
Who see the world's great anguish
and its wrong and dare not speak.
