I've argued against read tables in all the systems I've built, often  
against
great odds, for just this reason.  I'm set in my ways.  But...
   <http://common-lisp.net/project/named-readtables/>
appears to offer some hope.

I have not seen it in use, and given my ways I certainly haven't used  
it.
