It's not even about performance as it is about security. Imagine having to install only basic web server, with no database server and X language interpreter.No need to worry about sql injection and such. And you get performance boost for free.

Accepted that SQL security is pretty optimal with statics. How about security of your data when buying through 3rd party JS stores, commenting through 3rd party add-ons, being tracked by 3rd party snippets, etc.

Hard to deny that the additional functionality most people end up wanting beyond a simple online journal brings additional security risks, whatever the framework.
