You didn't answer the question.  :-)

What benefit to we get from moving the test *on the branch*?  Will the
compiler become more reliable?  Will I get to announce the release any
sooner? :-)

To me, it doesn't seem likely from what you say, although I think your
arguments about -ffloat-store and such make sense for the mainline.

So, I think your plan is good for the mainline, and we should do
nothing for the branch.
