Query on ISSUE: LOAD-OBJECTS
It says somewhere in this proposal:
MAKE-LOAD-FORM of an object of metaclass STANDARD-CLASS or
STRUCTURE-CLASS for which no user-defined method is applicable signals
Surely this can't mean "user-defined", since that would effectively prohibit
an implementation from using STANDARD-OBJECTs for internal purposes. Perhaps
the next sentence in that paragraph is all that is really needed:
It is valid to implement this [default error-signaling behaviour] either
by defining default methods on STANDARD-OBJECT and STRUCTURE-OBJECT that
signal an error or by having no applicable method for those classes.
with the implication that user-defined classes of metaclass either
STANDARD-CLASS or STRUCTURE-CLASS will see no other system-provided
methods on MAKE-LOAD-FORM.
