The thing is that SBCL implements the extension which is proposed in
the comment to the specification. However, that is just a comment and
for instance CLISP will complain about the same type declaration. It
is not a big effort, probably, to look at ecl/src/cmp/cmpenv.lsp and
add a couple of statements identifying type declarations for valid
types, though.
