[Ecls-list] Note checking types of arguments?

When compiling this function:

RETURN: A new keyword with SYM as name.

I get:

;;; Compiling (DEFUN MAKE-KEYWORD ...).
;;; Note:
;;;   in file utility.lisp, position 28160
;;;   at (DEFUN MAKE-KEYWORD ...)
;;;   In function MAKE-KEYWORD, checking types of arguments SYM.

What does this note mean? 

I hope that in addition to checking the types of the arguments, it
also generates the code to do the required computations... ;-)

If so, what's so special about argument type checking that is note
