In §6.12, page 54, of draft 8, the environment primitive's description,
includes, in part `The
bindings of the environment represented by the specifier are immutable,
as is the environment itself.' In §6.14, page 59, load's description
includes `The load procedure reads expressions *and definitions* from
the file and evaluates them sequentially in the environment specified by
environment-specifier .' [Emphasis added]
These two sentences appear contradictory.
(My apologies if this issue has been dealt with before, for various
reasons I haven't been able to follow this list in the last few months.)
