Youv'e tackled part of the WEI score - sequential reads/writes, but not the random accesses of smaller files. Here you still have the hard disk head seek latency. You can get disks with smaller seek time or an SSD.
I recollect seeing someone who posted a WEI score for a 4 disk raid 10 (effectively striping across two disks) who switched back to RAID 0 (striped across 4 disks) and got something like 0.2 increase.
I wouldn't worry about WEI too much. Your sequential speeds on raid 10 are probably more than adequate for most anything so I wouldn't go to raid 0.
