Along similar lines, it's worth noting that at least 10 well-known
Schemes are case-sensitive by default: Bigloo, Chicken, Gambit, Gauche,
Guile, JScheme, Kawa, PLT, rscheme, scsh. At least two others, Chez and
SISC, allow case-sensitivity to be specified as an option.
Given this situation, what would it mean for the R6RS to specify
For me, this is another reason that simply sticking to pure
case-insensitivity would be questionable, despite my personal preference
for that mode.
