True! Reversing the order in which things are called would enable Blink and
WebKit's preloaders to be aware of the state of the tree, so we could mark
tokens as optional (or not send them to the preloader at all). +1 to
optional sub-trees as a lazy-loading signal.

Now we need to think if there are use-cases where a sub-tree shouldn't be
optional, but we'd want to lazy load its images never the less.
