CL -> CCL -> MACL -> MCL -> OpenMCL -> CCL came also from Apple's  
Research Lab (a bit):
MCL (Macintosh Common Lisp) was owned by Apple for a few years, it was  
an official Apple product and
several people now working with Clozure CL were working for Apple.  
Apple bought the original
developers of Coral Lisp and then they enhanced it while they were  
working at Apple.
So, I guess there is still some connection...

Brian, to be part of the beta program one had to explain what one is  
working on and only few developers were accepted.
So I'd guess that Apple is aware that this is a Smalltalk
