This is a bit silly, but I'm wondering if you are reconstructing
QUUX's quote accurately. The quote I can find (from
format-colon-uparrow-scope), is ``Absolutely none. We're talking
about FORMAT here.'' -- Guy L. Steele Jr. In any case, the proposal
is to change WITH-OPEN-STRING, not FORMAT. I'd be happier if it said
that this was a minor improvement to the aesthetics of the language
because it made it more consistent.
I agree with your last sentence, also I think the Steele quotation was never
relevant to this issue.
"Relevance: Absolutely none. We're talking about Steele here."
