Comment (by aristath):

 While exploring ways to improve performance for block themes in Core I
 came across this ticket again.
 Block themes currently parse the content before the `<head>`, and then
 load a separate CSS file for each block-type that exists on a page. These
 files are tiny and most times get inlined, but not always (there's a
 filterable default maximum of 20kb for inlined styles).
 When a block-style does not get inlined, we should make these styles
 available to the browser as soon as possible to prevent render-blocking.
 In order to do that, we need to allow `preload` and apply it to the core
 block stylesheets.
