Comment (by johnbillion):

 Including a default `preconnect` entry for `s.w.org` seems unjustified.
 This means every single visitor (with a supporting browser) to every
 single WordPress site in the world will be performing a preconnect to
 `s.w.org`, purely to save a few ms in case an emoji is used that's not
 supported by the browser.

 Does this really justify a preconnect to `s.w.org` on every site?
