Because doing redisplay is a user-visible side effect, and in general,
timers shouldn't have those. AFAICS, any function that calls things like
`accept-process-output', `input-pending-p' or `sit-for' inside a
`save-excursion' might get an unwanted scrolling effect if point is
temporarily moved to some invisible location.

In fact, I just understood another bug in speck-mode (which is similar
to flycheck). I sometimes had unwanted scrolls there, too, and I now saw
that those also happen at every full minute while typing.

I thought that the jit-lock timer is a non-idle timer, but you are
right.
