Yes, the point AFAIK is to reduce the size of the heap that we have to GC so
as to reduce the time spent in the GC.

Also in some older systems without copy-on-write, marking the corresponding
section as read-only allowed it to be shared between instances of the
Emacs process, but nowadays I can't think of any situation where that would
be relevant.
