This makes sense.

However, there is still a potential use case for speed vs quality hints:
when the author wants to treat some content on the page as visually more
important than other content. For example, you might have a gallery page
with a bunch of unimportant bling around the actual image/canvas you care

I'm unsure whether that's realistic enough to justify supporting hints.

"He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are
healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his
own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all." [Isaiah
