(defmacro foo (&whole w) ...)

It should be entirely self-consistent: (&whole w) should bind w to
the macro form, and REQUIRE no arguments. If what you want is to hack
with arbitrary arguments, just use (&rest args), and i bet you don't want
the car of the form most the time then anyway.
I agree. Common Lisp needs as much consistency and simplicity as it can
get, at this point.
