I put the table in Arc because I was trying to make it work as closely as possible to stuff like defset and help. Although it is a little weird to have the core code relying on stuff going on in Arc-land, I think that's going to be necessary to give Arc as much power as possible.

Also, the core code only relies on call to be defined when it's actually trying to resolve a functional-position object. Doing something like (= call nil) will only fail when you actually try to use a non-function object as a function.

That's a good point. And I do understand when it will fail, it just seemed odd. But you do make a good point about the power; it also reduces the number of axioms.
