Why not, especially since 24.1 introduces generalized lexical binding, which
"makes this issue more serious"?  What's the hurry to shove 24.1 out the door?

And it seems like if you insist on only going for halfway measures in 24.1 then
it would be better for users to see the constant value in Customize (no big
deal) that it is for byte-compilation not to work properly and for the doc to be
contradicted in several places (defcustom, eval-when-compile,...).
