I'd start by declaring symbol-macrolet and defsubst* as deprecated
(they both suffer from serious bugs, the corresponding features aren't
very important and noone is willing/able to fix them).
Of course lexical-let will be marked obsolete soon as well.

Fixing the setf-method handling shouldn't be that hard (basically
adding macroexpand-1 and making it use it).
