In an attempt to prove this issue to be significant in real life, I've ran an analysis of ~35K top Alexa HTMLs from webdevdata.org.
What I have seen is that only 30% of external stylesheet are supposed to be fetched using the PreloadScanner (i.e. they appear after an external script in the HTML).
I've also seen that only 0.5% of those had a media attribute that referred to a complex media query (e.g. width, device-width, orientation, device-pixel-ratio).

So I guess that at least for now, this is not an important issue.

Never the less, I'd love to discuss ways to improve the patch, to make it more compliant with current and future WebKit design.
Is this bug the right place to do so? Are other channels preferable? (IRC, mailing list, etc)
