That would disable error detection for all preloaded defcustoms, the
vast majority of which do not need to be re-initialized in startup.el.
My two functions do not really disable error detection at startup for
those defcustoms for which they are used, since they get reevaluated
in startup.el with error detection enabled.

Somebody who unsets an option that uses one of the two functions,
changes the definition (but not the :initialize function) and reloads
the file will have to realize that error detection is disabled, but
this is a rather exceptional situation.
