Is &body REALLY like &rest?

Another in a long series of clarifications of clarifications is
In CLtL, page 145, it says
``&body This is identical in function to &rest...''
In Guy's clarifications, it says
``145 Extend the syntax of an &body parameter to DEFMACRO to allow
&body (body-var [declarations-var [doc-var]])''
so as to make it easy to call PARSE-BODY.
I agree with KMP's remarks on this subject. I would also like to point
out that this change is, I believe, not from the list of clarifications
but from the list of suggested changes.
