Save all ORCID data into HTML to improve speed and search ranking

At the moment, most of the information shown in an ORCID profile is loaded via JavaScript rather than being saved directly into the HTML. This creates a number of problems:

- search engines cannot see any of that information (which is why even a blank Academia.edu page will tend to rank higher than a full ORCID record);
- an ORCID record shows up almost empty if one is browsing without JavaScript enabled, with no indication that one is missing anything;
- pages are slow to load and sometimes get stuck without loading completely;
- pages do not load on older mobile devices;
- pages cannot be accessed easily by web spiders or archivers.

Given all this, it would really brilliant if you could save all ORCID data (not just links and bio) directly into the HTML rather than loading it via JavaScript.
