No.  Emacs should follow Common Lisp in this regard.

And it should follow it not only in terms of names but also in terms
of behavior, as much as is practical.  E.g., `some-p' should be `some',
and it should have the Common Lisp `some' behavior.

This might already be more or less the case for `cl-some' etc., in
which case there is no need (and it would be a nuisance) to add a
separate `some-p' etc. with a different behavior.
