Software is distributed pre-compiled for a reason -- because people run
the software on hardware where compiling the software takes a long time.
It's entirely reasonable for people to want to have a fully-built
native-compiled Emacs installation on their laptops, without making that
Emacs do any further JIT compilation.  (Except where necessary for
trampolines, of course.)

This has been requested a number of times over several years now, but
these requests have been ignored because apparently "people shouldn't
want that".
