Yes, indeed. I don't know about CLTL, but in Guile one can extend
the reader so anything after the '#' is possible (of course it's
not really a great idea to pick a well-established one like 
'#t' or '#<' ....). Why not generalize CM and use something 
like #c<foo> where 'c' is different for the different types
of objects ? 

 #i<foo> = an instance 
 #c<foo> = a container
 #s<foo> = a sequence
