I did not say that it can not be done. I just said that PROCLAIM is only working fully when the compiler is loaded.
The way it is used by OpenAxiom is schematized by Waldek's example.
And it works
well with CLisp, SBCL, and GCL.  For us, it is important that it works
well with ECL
too.  Given the above explanation, how what is your recommendation to get the
proclamation used by the compiler?  Is there a way to 'preload' the compiler
persistently in the preliminary 'lisp' image that we build prior to the Boot

If you are executing a PROCLAIM form then why not execute (REQUIRE 'CMP)?
