Sure, but it still means that those programs will have to be written
From scratch or adapted. I conjecture the adaptation will mostly
consist of adding the missing features.

Common Lisp implementations exist which produce code just about as
efficient as anything else on the planet, even if they implement a
large subset of the language.
I think you're referring to memory footprint which indeed weighs in
heavy, because the CL committee forgot to organize the language into
layers and/or packages, and you basically always have to have the
whole thing in-core.
