Bloat is a security risk too

There is so much loaded on most modern pages that the server will happily provide the browser enough to hang its self via cross site exploits. I have clients that want me host harmless fonts yet fonts also get run as programs and often at some funny security layer to keep the GPU happy. For PCI-DSS you must audit every line of html, javascript, CCS and ensure your images and fonts are clean. All of that costs an enormous amount of money.
