Just suddenly thought about what @joeyh said...
If nothing were compiled (scripting all the way down to and including the kernel), then access to the source code would probably not need to have been mentioned in freedom 1. It would be at most a footnote.
I guess that means that the term "open source" wouldn't have made sense / caught on then either.
