We cannot do much about Emacs' handling of autoloads, but what we can
(and should) do is changing org-mouse to become a global minor mode.
Then, loading org-mouse will cause no side effects.

It will be a breaking change though. Not for Org 9.6.

Note that this bug is not new. org-mouse has not been changed for a long
