The difference is that .emacs changes more frequently that your
average package.

This will happen once: You modify your .emacs and spend a few hours
trying to figure out why the change isn't having any effect.  You then
kick yourself as you realize that it's using the byte compiled
version.

After that, you'll never byte compile again.
