VisualEditor: From a cold start using debug=true, there's no indication VE is loading for a few seconds; move some init stuff further up?

Description

When I access
https://pt.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Usuário(a):Helder.wiki/Testes&oldid=38949256&veaction=edit&debug=1
with an empty cache on Firefox 29, it takes at 5+ seconds until I see any progress bar. Sometimes this makes me click in the edit link again because it seems not to be loading at all...

There are a few issues with how things are initialized. The delay until the loading animation appears is only a symptom of a larger problem: there are multiple requests being made, blocked on each other, that should really be combined.
