You cannot say that.  You could say that it's the Common Lisp way, but
you'd be wrong, since Common Lisp is a synthesis, a unification of
existing lisp languages.  defstruct is included in Common Lisp because
it existed in previous lisps, such as MacLisp or ZetaLisp, etc.

Notice that emacs lisp being slightly earlier than Common Lisp,
inherits rather from MacLisp than Common Lisp.
