Most sites don't hit capacity levels of their webservers, especially when CDN is being used.


When you do it for a living, that's not really true. Your comments on use of CDNs is only slightly true when using any common CMS - WordPress, Drupal, Silverstripe... the reasons being:
- a CDN can handle the (possibly heavy) lifting of static resources. They're really good at that, and can reduce volume traffic on your network. It is unlikely that you'd notice a difference on webserver load unless desperately short of memory of network capacity.
- a CDN makes no ( maybe trivial ) difference to the speed of generation and delivery of the HTML skeleton that all of these resources fit into, as this requires server side processing, and database access to generate. Only proper sizing and tuning of your server ( and code optimisation ) will directly affect that.

( yes, I know this is an oversimplification but there you go... )

It is unlikely that anyone using a CDN would be in the category of the trivial users that you describe, who would probably be best using shared resources and have little need or use for optimisation or WPT - just installing a FPC plugin ( one that can compress/combine css, js and html as they all shrink by much more than a factor of 5 - as opposed to images which just don't! ) is probably the best that you can do.
