> Every byte is critical during the critical SSL/TLS handshake

As for me, security can't be traded for speed - no matter what - and 
personally I don't care a bit (nor byte). My task isn't to make the 
Internet faster (of course I love if it does), but whenever possible 
more secure. What we are discussing has been in place as a basic and in 
my opinion minimum mechanism to indicate a certificate's status.

If speed is an issue lets work on making revocation check both faster 
and more reliable by enabling hard fail.
