I don't think it is a problem to load a file if you are trying to get
information (or customize) a *specific* variable (or face or group)
defined in that file.

However, it could be a problem if we load files as a result of a more
generic search, like the apropos commands, creating a customize menu,
or a customize buffer for a group containing variables from many
unrelated files, like the "basic customization" group suggested on
