Quoting from the Google link I provided:

Speeding up websites is important — not just to site owners, but to all Internet users. Faster sites create happy users and we've seen in our 
internal studies that when a site responds slowly, visitors spend less time there. 

So while eCommerce sites may be slow I assume you are not saying that's an ideal to strive for. And that brings us back to the question of best practices for loading externals in a plugin.

With almost 23k plugins in the repo, it's hard to know which you refer to and which techniques you take issue with.  Specifics would be more helpful.
