My notes from Fairfax meeting...
Haflich had a comment about IMPORT that I didn't understand.
Sandra: Good but doesn't go far enough. It should also say that
LISPxLISP properties were not ok -- ie, that you could
have implementations with initial properties on LISP
symbols only if indicators were non-LISP symbols, and
symbols with LISP indicators if those symbols were
not on LISP.
JonL: Clarify relation to LISP-SYMBOL-REDEFINITION. In particular,
users -should- be permitted to put LISP-package properties
on other LISP symbols, mostly for interactive convenience.
The practice might be discouraged in production-quality
systems for reasons of modularity hygiene but LISP shouldn't
complain if it occurs.
