OK, so you've confirmed my doubt.  I stand corrected.

(Actually, you've shown only that there exists an implementation (albeit a
common one) that prints a warning.  That does not confirm that the CL spec says
that's OK.  But I claimed IANAL...)

Perhaps this kind of message is a candidate for a :debug warning level?  I
already said that it is useful for programmers.  I do not see it as helpful for
general users just loading a library.  On the contrary: some might become
confused, if not downright worried.  That's all I'm trying to say.
