Apparently since the Legalize the Cannondale campaign it was possible to make sub-15 pound bikes about 15 years ago.

But, sub-15 pound bikes doesn't just happen. One has to choose exceptionally light components throughout.

Companies should be discouraged from making overly light bikes, then adding lead ingots to them for racing.
