On page 1-15 of the concepts draft of March 88 there is a statement that
"...redefining a class may cause slots to be added or deleted.  If a
class is redefined in such a way that the set of local slots accessible
in an instance is the same and the order of slots in storage is unchanged,
no instances are updated."

Does this mean that if I change the :allocation of a slot
from :instance to :class while leaving everything else about the class
unchanged, that the existing instances of the class will keep their local
slot values?

Thanks very much for taking the time to answer.
