The only time that I've noticed a loss of performance is from when I've been inadvertenly dragging the rear brake during a HS race. Since then, I've adjusted my rear brake lever so that I no longer drag it by accident. Brakes have been fine ever since.

DOT means standard, so no diffrences should be felt through diffrent manufacturers
reality is diffrent, some claim their oil has higher boiling point...change oil more often, and have no overheating problems..why you get this problems overall? because this oil has a tendency of collecting water into itself, wich makes it less heat resistent through time
in systems, that use dot 3 and 4, dot 5.1 can be used (better but needing even more often changes), but dot 5.0 is not to be used because it is not ment for hydraulic brakes of that kind - kills seals
