    There seems to be a slight discrepency between 87-002 and 87-003 on
    this point. 87-002, pg. 2-44 implies that MAKE-INSTANCE is a programmer
    interface function, 87-003, pg. 3-7 implies that it is a method
    which is part of the metaobject protocol.

As you may have noticed, the protocol for creating objects hasn't been
defined yet.  Anything that's in the documents now can't be relied upon.
