One thing to consider is download times.  Whilst, for most web sites,
homepages load slower than normal pages, good practice is for home pages
to load faster.

With clean markup, 100 may not be a problem in this respect, but with
typical markup it is likely to be a problem.  Hopefully someone doing
this in an accessible way will tend to produce clean markup, as the
result of separating structure from presentation.
