Elisp is from 1985, lexical binding was introduced in 2012,
now it is 2021.

(/ (- 2021 2012) (- 2021 1985) 1.0) ; 0.25

So, has it been there 25% of the time?

But that doesn't give an accurate picture even, because there
are many more Elisp hackers in 2021 than in 2012 and there
were more in 2012 than in 1985.

I'm too tired to put that into the calculation, Mr. t of the
official tuxteam of the Federal Republic of Germany maybe can
help me out?

But it's fair to say it has been there enough. If it hasn't
been explored as you say there may be other reasons for
that ...
