EP 5.0 Content - Initial Download optimization

Does anyone have any suggestions for reducing the amount of "common code" that is downloaded each time the portal is accessed? The stylesheet files and the "controls_XXX.js" files significantly impact loading on a "slow" line. We've considered removing some unnecessary code from these files, but we are concerned that will inadvertantly cause display issues. Any one have any good approaches.

    For 6.0 we've turned on http compression for .js and .css in the SAP J2EE engine and this reduce the size of the files in a ration between 0.1 and 0.2 (ie. between 5 and 10 times smaller). Of course there is a small overhead for the compression/decompression on server and client.

    There are some small problems with compression on js files(due to bugs in IE and netscape), but we haven't discovered any on the portal.
