  (cond ((endp x) y)
        (t (cons (car x) 
                 (app (cdr x) y)))))

The admission of APP is trivial, using the

the domain recognized by O-P ) and the measure
(ACL2-COUNT  X).  We observe that the
type of APP is described by the theorem (OR
(CONSP (APP X Y)) (EQUAL (APP X Y) Y)).  We used primitive type
