That's not what I said or meant.  What I meant was that considering
the problem non-existent because this is how distros install the Lisp
files sounds strange to me, because it assumes no user will ever want
to modify these files enough to make them writable.  IOW, the
assumption that bothered me was that no one will ever want to modify
those files, e.g., to fix some bug or add a feature.

Exactly.  And then the problems I had in mind will rear their heads.
