I am not talking about the word you want to see, but the words that are
compiled into this word's CFA. There you only have a pointer to another
CFA, but NOT to the word's header.

I agree, COMPILE-ONLY is somewhat duplicate with IMMEDIATE anyways as it
is nothing but an immediate word with no interpretion functionality.
But why add yet another flag for FCode? What should that be good for?
