FYI: a metaobject extension

re: By the way, although it's not really part of this, in the same project I 
    also had to extend DEFMETHOD to allow a parameter specializer name to be 
    a class rather than a class name.  This was necessary because not all 
    classes have names.  This was the only place in CLOS I could find where 
    a class object cannot be used where a class name is accepted, so I think 
    it's an inconsistency and would propose to change it if the CLOS language
    were not stable.

That looks like a bug/oversight in the documentation of CLOS.  Can't we
just agree that that's what was originally meant?
