So that, with everything else the same and we have poor FBT, when we test a page in our site with no images and not a lot of "payload" maybe 200kb or so, magically we get greatly improved FBT. Every time.

No one is saying the size of images are related to FBT. Bloat is a separate consideration but it is a much more important one than FBT.

Tell Patrick that. WPT scores CF as a CDN and it is considered a CDN for the context of the testing. Sites using Cloudflare, when you look in the test results to see what CDNs it has, you see "CDNs used; Cloudflare." Additionally, when you look up CDN most anywhere, CF is listed:

I think it is okay to call it a CDN if Patrick and the rest of the world does.

Not sure how many times I need to demonstrate that getting rid of excess bloat helps the FBT as well as the rest of the performance measurements. I've only done it for dozens of sites.
