Right. This demonstrates that LEXICAL-EVAL would have to be a
new special form, rather than simply a function.
Even if it were a special form, what code could the compiler generate
for it? Would the presence of such a special form require turning off
all optimizations having to do with the lexical environment and cause
the compiler to create some sort of run-time environment structure
containing names and such? Yecch.
