CLOS in the standard

What I voted on and what appears in the minutes is that CLOS is part of the
standard, as much as anything else in CLtL. Some people are considering ways of
making parts of the standard "optional" or somehow dividing it, but those would
have to come as future proposals. Given the votes for and against, I think you
voted for the same motion. "for inclusion in the Common Lisp language being
specified by this committee" doesn't mean "as an optional component", any more
than sequence functions or format or ED, TRACE and BREAK are optional.

I'm suprised by your remark. Since "the usual editorial and cleanup processess"
means that this committee will be handling some of the CLOS-related changes, I'd
have expected to hear from you before now if you were going to propose to make
CLOS "optional".
