(ionicons 5/6) Site Speed with ion icons svg loading

Hey ionic framework community,

We are using just ionicons v5 on our website and one of the on-going todo’s is to increase site speed. We have noticed that ion icons request each SVG file individually on first load which causes an exponential grow of server timings depending on how many are used on a page.

We have used ion icons v2 and v4 in the past and these come bundled with a font .SVG or .WOFF file. The new versions of ion icons use single SVGs. Is there a way to request all icons in a single request or is this a feature that could be addressed in the future?

Thank you,
