The reason why some users may be mislead about EXPORT is that they fail to
heed the directive on the second line of p186: "See section 11.4 for details".

The one paragraph description of EXPORT on p186 is grossly incomplete without
reference to that other section, which cleary states: (p177, last paragraph) 
"The function EXPORT takes a symbol that is *accessible* in some specified
package ...  If the symbols is not accessible at all in the specified
package, a correctable error is signalled that, upon continuing, asks the
user whether the symbol should be imported." [my emphasis].

Every implementation I'm familiar with seems to implement the above
semantics rigidly; no one quietly imports the symbol without first
signalling an error.
