In your example, the logo is the only element that needs an external  
resource. For all the rest, the order in which they are loaded is strictly  
defined by the markup. Because markup is a sequential stream, the only way  
to process it is from start to end.

Or are you proposing reordering elements in the markup so that the most  
important parts of the page come first?
