Exactly. It boils down to the `get-output-xxx' procedures, which the
R6RS drafts have but SRFI 81 does not. SRFI 81 (combined with SRFI
79) doesn't allow a straightforward implementation of it (which is
precisely why it's missing), but the magical mystery procedure does,
which is why I like it.
Sorry for being unclear.
