I think everyone agrees, which is why that approach is not being

But loading the "pre-loaded" *.elc files as quickly as possible is IMO
an attractive approach, because it's very simple and doesn't require
knowing too much about unrelated issues.

I agree, we should strife for simplicity first and performance later. I'd suggest to use the pre-loaded .elc approach in master and work on a faster (but still portable) replacement later, when the need arises. Switching to a portable dumper now means we can cut out lots of code and workarounds, which is a significant win.
