At the time when we realize that we need to load the bytecode, we could
indeed reload the file, but we'd still be in the middle of trying to run
the bytecode of a function from the old file and we wouldn't know which
function this is (we only have at hand the byte-code-function-p object,
not the corresponding symbol) so we wouldn't know how to redirect the
call to the newly loaded version of the function.
