In <16.3.2. Signalling fixnum operations>, the "fx" prefix should be
separated from the rest of each name using a hyphen in exactly the
way as the prefix "fixnum-" is used, e.g. fxdiv should be fx-div.
Similarly, in <16.4. Flonums>, the "fl-" prefix should be used
analogously to the "fixnum-" prefix for consistency. Currently, the
naming conventions are inconsistent.
