glibc optimization

Can anyone please explain why the lfs-book (3.2-rc2) warns not to 
optimize glibc? Are there bugs? What happens if I optimize? After all, 
IMHO glibc has some of the most frequently used functions in the entire 
system, so tightening the code as much as possible will have an impact 
on the whole system. What is going on? Any fixes? Has anyone tried 
this?, etc. I looked in the glibc FAQ and INSTALL and README, and found 
no information.
