Good point. Howver, I think it's likely that it's going to take some
time for the R7RS process to get going, even if it's started now. The
Steering Committee elections will take some time, then the SC will need
to get together to decide when and how to start the actual process, and
*that* will take some time, and so on. Also, the process could still be
delayed at any intermediate stagte.
