The defstruct in the example was really something of a red herring: we
encounter quite a few things like

 (defun foo (x)
   (declare (type unknown-type x))

when building the cross-compiler. If I understand what you're saying
correctly, full warnings from these (as opposed to style-warnings) are
intentional in CCL?
