This is correct. We were well over the original deadline (i.e. the one
set before Kent Dybvig took over) already, and I think we all had a
desire to get back to our lives, which we had planned to do much
earlier. In contrast, witness R5RS, which took something like 6 years
to write up, and, while Richard Kelsey did a magnificent job correcting
many of the mistakes that are in R4RS, it still contained some. I share
your desire to improve the report over time, but I don't believe that
prolonging the process would have significantly changed its reception.
