Comment (by JohnONolan):

 Ocean90: so why normal and not none? Seems strange.

 Filosofo: I completely disagree. Theme authors didn't ask for an admin bar
 to get in their way, and they aren't writing CSS for the admin bar.
 They're writing CSS for their own layout, so the CSS should only affect
 their own layout. The only time a theme or plugin's CSS should affect the
 admin bar is if it's prepended with .admin-bar.

 A "ridiculously bloated" CSS file is a complete overstatement - it's 12kb
 vs 8kb, and is only ever going to be loaded by logged in users - size is
 not an issue.

 Is it neat? No. Is it necessary? In my opinion, absolutely.
