        M-x recursive-edit RET C-h k C-c C-c
        C-c C-c runs the command exit-recursive-edit

Quite a number of commands use recursive-edit, and it doesn't make me
feel comfortable to have two important "global" bindings on the same
key sequence.

For most of the existing keybindings it seems to me that C-c C-c means
"I am done with this, finalize it and pass it on, and we are both done
with it".

You can make compile fit with that definition also, but in my mind
compile is more like a "start doing something" than finalize

But I see your point, and maybe I just need change a brain pattern to
get used to this.  Actually, the more I think about it, the more I
tend to agree with you!  (That's a 180 degree turn in 10 lines :-)
