  OK, I know what I want for the "revision" of ANSI Common Lisp: the
  specification of a registry of feature symbols, to be handled by a
  registration authority.  this could also be an additional standard.

  the registry would have to pre-register all known feature symbols and
  accept collisions but also list how to disambiguate, but no new features
  should collide.

  it's election time in Norway.  explains everything, doesn't it?
