I'd like to point out that the situation with frequent updates of
Emacs that require recompilation of *.eln files is peculiar to Emacs
development on the master branch, and will generally rare if ever
happen for "normal" users, and even for us developers on the release

Like I said before, the pattern of JIT compilation in "normal" usage
is that it happens for a few minutes after installing a new version of
Emacs, and thereafter happens only rarely.

I think NATIVE_FULL_AOT takes more time, because it compiles much more
than an average user will ever use.  (But I don't object to supporting
such a build for people who want it.)
