I’m not a Gutenberg specialist (for from it, really) but:
the wrong way is adding JS with wp-block/ wp-element and other gutenberg dependencies on init calling wp_enqueue_script,
the right way is either hooking into enqueue_block_editor_assets (see https://jasonyingling.me/enqueueing-scripts-and-styles-for-gutenberg-blocks/)
or when using init doing wp_register_script and then register_block_type referring to the correct editor_script previously registered (see https://wordpress.org/gutenberg/handbook/designers-developers/developers/tutorials/block-tutorial/writing-your-first-block-type/).
I’ve tried both of these on a “bad” plugin and can confirm both solutions do prevent those needless wp-includes/js/dist/* JS-files from being added on the front-end.
So dear plugin-developer-friends; when adding Gutenberg blocks please differentiate between editor access and visitor access, only enqueue JS/ CSS if needed to display your blocks and when registering for front-end please please frigging please don’t declare wp-blocks, wp-element, … and all of those other editor goodies as dependencies unless your 100% sure this is needed (which will almost never be the case).
The performance optimization crowd will thank you for being considerate and -more likely- will curse you if you are not!
Live version of a great new song by a new (super-)band by one not-so-new (Conor Oberst) and (given her age) one newish artist (Phoebe Bridgers). Somewhat reminds me of the alternative rock-scene of the nineties (Hole, Throwing Muses and whatnot) and that is a good thing!

You know that frustrating Google PageSpeed Insights opportunity “Defer unused CSS”? Well, it’s going to be renamed soon (in Lighthouse first, so GPSI should follow) as per this Github merged pull request;
The full text will read;
Remove unused CSS Remove dead rules from stylesheets and defer the loading of CSS not used for above-the-fold content to reduce unnecessary bytes consumed by network activity.
