6. Numerous error cases not properly handled.

   Many list functions, for example, are required to signal a type error
  if the list argument is not a proper list (see many of the error cases
  in tests loaded from load-cons.lsp.)

More properly, they 'should be prepared to signal an error', which
basically means that in safe code if the routine has to go to the end
of the list anyway, it should check it ends in NIL.
