Actually, it's the inductive reactance of the trace/PSU connections
that matters here. With high-frequency signals -- this doens't mean a
high clock rate necessarily, it means a fast ris-time edge -- you can
get significant voltage drop from very small 'inductors', like the
connction from the chip to the PSU.
