Not only that, but most modern PCI (even) cards don't require IO space.
Or does this include memory space - which can be much bigger.

I have cut one of our FPGA PCIe slaves down from two 8MB BARs to
two 1MB ones, with the extra small BARs (eg for MSI-X) the bridge
would have allocated 32MB, now 4MB.
Fortunately that card only needs to work on x86-64.
