Smaller is faster and why update if you don’t have to.
I know that. I was agreeing with you.
Word 9 (2001) for Mac is roughly 9 MB, Word 11 (2004) is about 19 MB. It's unfortunate, I know.
Also unfortunate is the fact that Word 11 - or 10, if you can find it - is your only option for running office on your Intel Mac. If it's precious milliseconds you wish to save, keep the OS 9 box around.
