Yes, sorry if I was not clear.  There are two things that could
be improved:

1. The issue you raised, which is whether or not test code should
   be byte-compiled.

2. Bug #6991, http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=6991.

If the code you need to see in the backtrace is byte-compiled
then eliding that byte-code won't help.  Agreed.
