I would like to recap the issues:

defines a variable that is not dynamic but and not exactly lexical
we cannot declare a lexical variable as special. But the variables
by SETF are not dynamic and we can declare them as special. So the
is not dynamic and is not lexical.
I think that SETF should define a global lexical variable if the
variable is not
previously defined by DEFVAR or DEFPARAMETER (unlike CMUCL SETF se
Recall that I showed an example of SETF in CMUCL. CMUCL SETF defines a
variable and raises a warning because the variable was not declared
using DEFVAR or
I think someone should carrefully look at this issues and decide what
to do with them.
