Nope.  Just a long-ago user.  Being around a
long time can sometimes give the impression
of being a veteran.

I have no reason to think Richard is dead
wrong about whether Elisp should have
keyword args.  I just related my (good)
experience with them in CL, as one user,
long ago.

Elisp could of course go in many directions.
That it hasn't taken certain directions I'm
generally thankful for, FWIW.  It's not a
bad language, and not every proposal or
imagined change represents real progress. ;-)
