From the definition of NAMESTRING, it should work on "pathname
designators". However, as the glossary shows, concatenated streams are
not valid pathname designators.
pathname designator n. a designator for a pathname; that is, an object
that denotes a pathname and that is one of: a pathname namestring
(denoting the corresponding pathname), a stream associated with a file
(denoting the pathname used to open the file; this may be, but is not
required to be, the actual name of the file), or a pathname (denoting
itself). See Section 184.108.40.206.2 (Open and Closed Streams).
stream associated with a file n. a file stream, or a synonym stream the
target of which is a stream associated with a file. Such a stream cannot
be created with make-two-way-stream, make-echo-stream,
make-string-input-stream, or make-string-output-stream.
