Yes right, I have ckecked too, thanks.

Probably it should be clarified:

(oref A :slot)
=> OK.
(oref A slot)
=> OK
(oref A 'slot)
=> Error: (wrong-type-argument symbolp (quote slot))
(slot-value A :slot)
=> OK
(slot-value A slot)
=> Symbol's value as variable is void: slot
(slot-value A 'slot)
=> OK
