[one thing at a time]

where does the spec say that

  "THE should compare the specified type with the type of the  
returned value of the form" ?

the version to which i customarily refer contains text [http:// 
www.lispworks.com/documentation/HyperSpec/Body/s_the.htm] which says

  "the specifies that the values[1a] returned by form are of the  
types specified by value-type. The consequences are undefined if any  
result is not of the declared type."

those two sentences do not mean the same thing as the behavior which  
you assert.
