TAILP-NIL:NIL is what Lucid Common Lisp supports, albeit for the
"wrong" reason. Since this issue has been around for nearly three
years (GLS's "Clarifications"), and since there has been no public
complaints about the many implementations that do it this way, then
codifying this seems right.
I wouldn't mind a line in your proposal that requires TAILP to signal
an error if the 'sublis' argument is any non-null atom.
