To ensure equivalence  I believe we need to go from elc->eln.

The emacs dev contract (implicit) has always been el->elc and developers
 should feel responsible for fixing el->elc warnings. But given the
 large number of already launched packages, changing that contract now
 to say developers should fix el->eln warnings is unlikely to succeed
 in the large.
