My guess is that standard-accessor-method, standard-reader-method and  
standard-writer-method only exist for optimization purposes. Based on  
the class of a method, compute-effective-method, for example, can  
then decide to inline slot access more aggressively because it knows  
what the method bodies of accessor methods look like. Something along  
these lines...
