Thanks everyone for your explanations.

I do believe that CCL's behaviour is correct now.

Some more comments:

SBCL and ECL map all class names to types while CLISP only maps
the proper name to a type.

Yes, indeed. I will try to enhance DEFTYPE's behavior in CCL.

What do you mean by "or the equivalent"?

  Thanks again,
