Its there, but you never want to use it. It isn't very performance friendly.

From http://docs.hp.com/en/B6196-90001/ch06s03.html

"Due to the pre-processing of the display list, and execution performance enhancements, creating a display list using the GL_COMPILE_AND_EXECUTE mode will reduce program performance. If you need to improve your programs performance, do not create a display list using the GL_COMPILE_AND_EXECUTE mode. You will find that it is easier and faster to create the display list using the GL_COMPILE mode, and then execute the list after it is created."
