another question about defmacro lambda lists

Does it make sense for nested lambda lists in a defmacro to contain things
No, it doesn't make sense. There is only one environment (the one in
which the macro is being expanded in). (Nor can it be destructured.)
CLtL does not say whether the non-top-level lambda lists
should be ordinary function lambda lists or whether they can use the extended
I almost couldn't find &environment because of a "publishing" glitch!!
The last paragraph on page 145 is supposed to have &environment next to
it, but doesn't. Indeed, the spec should be explicit about what may
appear in nested lambda lists.
