    Just for the record, I wouldn't wish to see any proposal adopted that didn't
    support the notion of PEEK-CHAR being equivalent to READ-CHAR + UNREAD-CHAR.

Such a proposal was already adopted in January by an 11 to 5 vote.  To clarify
the double negatives, PEEK-CHAR-READ-CHAR-ECHO as adopted in January eliminates
the equivalence of PEEK-CHAR to READ-CHAR+UNREAD-CHAR, but only when peeking
 from a stream created by MAKE-ECHO-STREAM.

We can reconsider anything, of course, if that's how we want to spend our time.
