In my opinion, it's not something we should be showing to users.  It's
highly irregular that we do -- we didn't present users saying "emacs"
with all the compilation warnings from building Emacs in Emacs 27.2, but
that's (in effect) what we're doing now.

Compilation warnings are for developers, not users, so builds that are
geared towards users (as pretests are) should have this switched off.
