| Being deprecated by ANSI standard doesn't help it either.

But don't forget that all of the "deprecated" features in
CLHS are still *required* to be present in an implementation
that purports to be a "Common Lisp".

    1.8 Deprecated Language Features

    Deprecated language features are not expected to appear
    in future Common Lisp tandards, but are required to
    be implemented for conformance with this standard; see
    Section (Required Language Features).
