Wouldn't this help [compiler] performance a little as well?  I imagine
any improvements would depend on access paterns (ie, separate arrays
accessed with similar indexes or each array being scanned separatly).

Either way, this sort of thing would definity improve readability, which
is much more important in a compiler than raw performance.
