I suspect that developers that cared enough to use such a thing would be able to create CSS that is not bloated enough to need the feature … take advertising for example: Almost all pages become smaller without ads and still there exists no <ad> element; incentives for advertisers to markup advertisments on web pages do not exist. Same for tracking scripts etc.. Note that browsers contain tools to limit loading speed to e.g. UMTS/3G. Greetings, -- Nils Dagsson Moskopp // erlehmann <http://dieweltistgarnichtso.net>
