I think what Richard is getting at, is that load-suffixes should be what you
call basic-load-suffixes and what you think of as load-suffixes should be
recomputed on-the-fly when needed.

As for me, I think that even in such a case, load-suffixes should not be
customizable: if people really want to use other extensions than .el and
.elc I see no reason why they should be able to do it via customize rather
than via a good old setq.  It sounds to me like a rather unusual situation.
