    Why use the extension ".el" then?  It seems misleading.

Because bootstrapping generates .elc files from all the .el files.
It will do this one just like the rest.
Making this a .el file is therefore natural.

Likewise, a release comes with the .elc files,
so it will come with this one, and that will prevent
bootstrapping when people build the release.
