Org releases are not frequent for most users and occasional build time
should not matter too much. Nobody complained on the list.

Org developers (at least, me) usually run make test. It does not touch
documentation. Full re-build is rarely needed because the documentation
does not change often.

I am not too familiar with how Emacs handles Org updates. AFAIK, Emacs
master only tracks our stable tagged releases. Not the working branches
(both bugfix and main). I do not know the motivation behind it and I do
not know if it is a good idea to change it. Do you think that Emacs
master should instead track our Org dev branch?

I assume that you figured that org-fixup.el contains functions to build
