The reason, AFAIC is the following: subr-x holds functions which we
haven't committed to adding to core.  We exceptionally allow them to
not use a prefix but in return we only use subr-x while compiling (since
it's fundamentally not namespace-clean and we don't want to impose those
non-clean names upon the unsuspecting user).
