The ones in predicate_compile_core.ML.  They are not used as data
storage but as storage for results of runtime evaluation, which for
technical reasons requires separate slots.  Of course you could
generalize this mechanisms to permit application of combinators or such
before storing, but I would argue that runtime evaluation is fragile
enough that you do not want to make it more complicated than needed anyway.
