In byte-run--parse-declarations in byte-run.el,
How about renaming the variable `cl-decls' to `cldecls'?
That way it won't be found in searches for `cl-'.
That is a lexical variable, right?  So it doesn't need any prefix.

By the way, why is the function byte-run--parse-declarations
defined with a defalias to a lambda?

If you know the reason, how about adding a comment there to state the reason?
Also, how about describing careully the meaning of the return value?
