 I've certainly noticed network latency issues on ESXi when system I/O
increases. (Hundreds of ms jitter.) I figured this was the same with ESX as
well, but there might be architectural differences between the two platforms
which would make a difference.

Or, maybe there's something else going on. Many ESXi users do use the local
datastores, so maybe that's where the "enterprise has less timing issues"
perception comes from -- if you're paying for licensing, you're probably
using a SAN and vice versa. If using local datastores affects network I/O,
"enterprise" users might sidestep this issue entirely.
