Not all. You still need to deal with dynamic class intialization in
compiled code (or explicitly falling back to interpreted code) for,
e.g., arms of conditionals which were not taken during interpretation.

On the other hand, most dynamic compilation strategies are based on the
assumption that the code paths taken during the initial interpretation
passes represent the common cases.
