	    ....Specification of Inheritance

	    None of :reader :accessor :allocation or
	    :initialize-only (if we still have that) are inherited....

	We decided at the meeting in Menlo Park that :reader and
	:accessor are inherited.  It is difficult to see how it could be
	otherwise if they are defined in terms of defmethod.

    Of course the methods generated by :reader and :accessor are inherited,
    but not the features of the slot.

I see, ok.  If text resulting from this conversation ends up in the document,
it will have to be worded more clearly, since it's easy to interpret ":reader
is not inherited" as ":reader has no effect on an inheriting class".

Comments on the rest of your message to follow at some later date.
