no, that just suggests you're uploading too much, if you can add more, and 
it's certainly very difficult to make accessible content when you're just 
pulling stuff into HTML with script endlessly.

It doesn't matter if it's 1mb over over a DSL connection or 50k over a GPRS 
connection, or just anyone trying to access a heavily loaded site.

Just because it's the only place (although I don't agree with that) it 
doesn't mean that we can suddenly change users expectations.
