Won't that prevent Emacs itself from writing the compile command's output to
the compilation buffer?  I also disagree with your suggestion in general,
since someone might want to run an interactive command that requires input
via `compile'.

I think what you want would be better implemented via the compilation buffer's 
rocess sentinel.
