What problem of consistency?

So, you would presumably agree with me, you know of no specific problem
that lexical binding in M-: will solve.  It causes breakage.  But you
think it's a good idea, anyway?

I believe people who say lexical binding is a good idea, even though I
can't see any benefit myself.  But there are places where lexical
binding is not a good thing, and M-: is one of these, in my view.
