It is. Not *very* large, but about 1.500 non-comment, non-empty lines.

Why? All this is loaded unconditionally. Why manage two or more files,
when one is fine?

As I've shown, I have code to detect a stale init.elc and
automatically recompile it, so there's no problem whatsoever with
having it all in one file. That's my preferred setup. If Emacs
suddenly refused to load .emacs.elc/init.elc, that would be extremely
unnice.
