There might be something to this, here are some combat log copies from taunts on my Shadow, you'll notice I see pretty much no delay at all.

20:44:45.526 Lindsayfunke activates Mind Control.

20:34:47.030 Lindsayfunke's Mass Mind Control adds effect Taunt to Molecular Decompiler.
20:34:47.031 Lindsayfunke taunts Molecular Decompiler, causing 8028 threat.

It looks to me like there is a delay for Vanguards/Powertechs at least compared to Shadows. I have a lowbie Powertech, I think around lvl 25, if I have unlocked the taunt ability on there I will try to mess around with it and see if I see delays like Amantino showed above.
