Where Pure Common Lisp lives

A nit pick on names: LOCAL is poor.  What does LOCAL: mean to somebody
in California (pick a site) running an implementation developed in the
eastern US (pick a site)?  VENDOR-EXTENSIONS: is more meaningful than
LOCAL:.  SYMBOLICS-COMMON-LISP: (SCL:) is >much< more meaningful than
LOCAL:.  I guess my question is: What is gained by agreeing on the
standard package for extensions.  I know this came up 6 weeks ago, but I
don't think the issue was closed.
