I think if it's data (i.e. not a CPU instruction stream), it should
not be linked into AOT image.
This is mostly specific to the iPhone. Applications can be compressed,
but Apple first encrypts all the code. So anything that is in the
executable is effectively not compressible. To save space, everything
that is not machine code should ideally be outside of the executable.
