• To fit common lisp in a natural way, in terms of functional notation and extending common LISP type
• To provide a smooth growth path and easy transitions for current users of flavors and common loops
• To provide a layered approach
• To provide both platforms for the efficient delivery of applications and language for powerful programing environment
