[R6RS] Hashing questions

A few questions:

I see the proposal has `equal-hash'.  Is there a special reason why
`eq-hash' and `eqv-hash' aren't provided?  Also, the Haskell folks use
a more primitive abstraction (called stable names) on top of which they
implement their equivalent of eq? hash tables.


(I'm sure there are earlier sources.  It's just what I could find most

Would these make sense generally as a base abstraction to build eq? 
hash tables or for R6RS?  I think someone mentioned that there were
efficiency concerns---if so could somebody hint at them briefly?
