The performance gain is slight.

The idea is that built-in, there's no additional level of lookup for symbol
names when functions are called that modules require.  Any more though
that's really a moot point.  It used to be that modules were just a little
bit slower than built-in.  Now modules are only a little little little bit
than built-in, and you lose a lot of flexibility.

Sure.  But since the messages is not harmful in any way, just ignore it. :-)
