  The places they are supposed to be used on are not variables that
  will be used in the body, so declarations are less relevant than in
  most other places.  It is of course a finite amount of work to make
  declarations work: Wrap a let form around the body instead progn, as
  always when you want declarations to work.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
