I understand @jonathon's perspective and my wife would say he is absolutely correct. And his logic--which concerns logic--is impeccable.  They are both code-monkeys programmers and look at it from a different perspective than users. They think different--their brains are wired different. (In my wife's case, real, real different ;) )

An elegantly written  application--or a DE comprised of elegant applications, regardless of how many GB that installed DE w/applications consumes--can never be 'bloated' from a programmer or analyst's perspective.

i know right ? They did all the hard work, who are we to judge. It's not like as if they built a windows vista or something.

I would agree on this point, as I personally do not use word "bloat" to refer to apps I don't use. That definition is impractical, as it would make all fully featured desktops bloated. But in different contex that might be valid and useful definition too.

I mostly use minimalistic window managers, but I don't think xfce, lxde, lxqt or gnome to be bloated (don't know wnough about kde to say). They are simply more fully featured: sure they use more resources, but they also do more.

So Keira Knightley is minimal, Kat Dennings is bloated. And for the sake of practical definition - i wouldn't mind having both for dinner. Yummy ! if you know what i mean :P
