Again, who cares?  If you want to use `return' you need to require the
package that defines it.

And?  Why would you care?  Without looking at the source code, can you
tell the difference?

You still haven't shown any evidence of incompatibility.

Show me a piece of code which would work with CL's dolist (but without
CL's return) and yet doesn't work with subr.el's dolist.
