I wonder if it would pass validation. CCL would have to run inside the  
Native Client runtime and some requirements must be met or the code  
won't be allowed to run:

"At a high level, these rules specify 1) that all modules meet a set  
of structural criteria that make it possible to reliably disassemble  
them into instructions and 2) that modules may not contain certain  
instruction sequences."

Not clear whether these requirements would be a real impediment to  
hosting a lisp runtime and compiler.

regards,

Ralph
