Well, I think its more that most upstream do not see the advantage of
compiling in non-custom mode... What would you tell them ?

The original reason was to avoid unstrippable binaries, which violate policy (cf. #256900). The fix on OCaml side is simple, but upstream refused the patch on the grounds that -custom is actually deprecated and applications using -custom should be fixed instead.

One could also reuse the argumentation of shared library... but this sounds pitiful here, given lack of support for shared libraries for OCaml code.
