[r6rs-discuss] Morphology of symbols: are you sure?

My name is Henrik and I just subscribed to this list.
I just started to read the R6RS specification and noticed that in the
syntax rules, <initial> allows, among many other stuff, all Unicode
code points with character class So. This would include:
U+FFFC OBJECT REPLACEMENT CHARACTER
U+FFFD REPLACEMENT CHARACTER
I did not find any word excluding these two and it feels dangerous or
at least awkward to allow them in symbols. U+FFFD is often produced
by de-/recoders to indicate an error.
Was this really intended? If so, why?
