If you are worried about that, then make a version of your stylesheet
optimised for your front page, and embed it directly in the page. You can
then use your generic stylesheet for the rest of the site.

Note that table-layout-markup tag soup pages are regularly 70kb or more.
This is nothing new. The size is merely moving from every HTML page to a
single CSS sheet.
