Just show the damn symbolPat regex from Clojure core.

The spec even forgets < is a valid symbol despite using it in the Datomic tutorial.

You are right (type (clojure.edn/read-string "<")) returns clojure.lang.Symbol in clojure 1.5.1.

To clarify this further, the spec says in section symbols:

Symbols begin with a non-numeric character

This includes <.
