I vote yes on the first one. For the second one, I'd like to review the
affected primitives, but it sounds reasonable.

I vote no. Although I'm in favor of making Scheme more functional, I'd
want to see a change like this as part of a larger proposal that deals
with such issues. Just as an example, I'd be more interested in the
addition of a more general immutable tuple type.

I vote yes to making it valid. I don't currently have an opinion on how
to do it.
