I guess you are right wrt syntax-case.  I remember that there were a  
few things that were left to discuss (identifier syntax, ...?).  In  
any case I think all SRFIs should be reviewed by the editors before  
submitting them to the SRFI editors.  Obviously the degree of review  
will vary (close to nil for Unicode on which there was high agreement  
at the Boston meeting, and more for syntax-case).
