I'm not speaking from a terribly informed position here, but I seem
to recall something at least tangentially related to your issue.

Namely, there was that Kent Pitman article mentioning ZetaLisp's
"default handlers" in his 2001 "Condition Handling in the Lisp
Language Family" paper [1].

They seem to be easily implementable in CL, I think.
