I was thinking that perhaps if file a.el requires a macro from b.el, and
b.el isn't compiled, then a.elc would end up in a somewhat less compiled
state than it otherwise would?

But if that's not the case, then perhaps `require', when run via
`byte-compile-file', should just always load the .el file if it's more
recent?  That certainly sounds easy enough to implement --
`byte-compile-file' could just bind a variable to signal that it wanted
this behaviour.
