Perhaps the complaint about "binding constants" isn't about the
constancy of association between a variable and its value, but about
whether the value happens to be read-only.

This would permit additional compiler optimizations regarding state
dependent functions like ELT.

Related question: are quoted constants in compiled functions "read-only"?
How about initial values for DEFCONSTANTs?

Is this what was intended by DECLARE (CONSTANT V)?
