    On a completely fresh install of beta 5a we saw yesterday a score of 91/100 with the Pagespeed tool for Desktop, and 83/100.  Note that this can depend upon your server configuration (for instance, whether or not you have gzip enabled for resources).
    We will not be addressing the "Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content" items that the pagespeed tools refers to at this time, because it is extremely (near impossible) to handle this properly in dynamically generated software that users subsequently adjust and modify.  For instance, the tool suggests putting all CSS necessary to show the "above the fold" content inline into the page, and then using javascript at the bottom of the page to import the rest of the CSS.  Firstly, the amount of CSS that constitutes what is necessary "above the fold" would be astronomical, and you would take a hit elsewhere with respect to reducing the page size and caching.  Secondly, it would be very error prone once you start factoring in addons, plugins, third party skins and template edits.  Finally, because of the amount of CSS necessary, it would likely reduce your score in other areas.
    That said, with a fresh install showing a score of 91/100, we feel that is a pretty respectable score.

    I know the tool isn't flawless, but it is what Google offers and we all must dance to Google's tune or pay the price in the rankings.
