The more I think about it, the more I think this is a proposal for the
SRFI editors, not the R6RS committee.
If I write a module that's compatible with R6RS+SRFIS(x,y,z) the only
assumptions I'm making of any Scheme are:
1. it's a valid R6RS implementation
2. it uses the standard SRFI import syntax
3. it provides SRFI's x, y, and z
Requirements 1 and 3 were there anyway, and it doesn't matter who
standardizes requirement 2 as long as it's widely respected.
Questions like yours make me think the SRFI editors are better suited to
make these decisions.
