As I said before, the idea is to decompose DOM into lego-like modules
that can be used independently or as a single pass. One would be able
to schedule minor cleanup passes. Regular DCE should already be fast
enough to not matter if you call repeatedly.
I will only remove kill_redundant_phi_nodes if I'm in a position to
offer the above as an alternative.
