What is "early" and what is "late" depends on the order of user
customizations in .emacs, which is entirely out of our control, and
can be almost arbitrary.

We introduced the early-init file in Emacs 27 to let users themselves
control which customizations are done early and which later, because
some customizations should be in place before we read .emacs.
