The issues you raise in your message, about system dependence of the
representation of functions, are PRECISELY the reason why there should
be function specs in the language, so that the user need not be aware
of the representation of functions.
Surely the :PROPERTY function spec must mean none other than "if you
do a GET, you will get something you can APPLY and FUNCALL."
