I'm thinking less boutique and more std production.

How does 4.4lbs fair?

Depends on the type of bike, size etc, so a piece of string question really. It's also one of the least important characteristics unless you're hard-core racer, so I'm not sure why folk get hung up on it.

Should be a nice ride - my DB with Truetemper AVR was actually quite good in 20"

Anything under 5.0 lbs for steel imho would be good, I think my 18" TET Kona Hot is around 4.5lbs if memory serves right.

Wow, that makes me happy.

Both my 20" 1991 RM Altitude and 1997 Kona Explosif weigh 4.65lb (~4lb 10oz).
My 1993 19.5" RM Altitude weighs a lot less at a bit less than 4.2lb

plenty more here

My 1994 Lava Dome, 18" is 4.4lbs. So yours does quite well seeming as it is a much larger frame.
