As it stands, the SRFI contains shameless favoritism of R6RS hashtables
over other hash table APIs.

I don't think we need to wait for R7RS-large deciding on a hash table
API though (which will probably take a long time), because it's fairly
clear that whatever hash table type is supported, it should be
considered a "sparse type" per SRFI-123, thus the same semantics
applying to R6RS hashtables should apply to that type.

So I think it's fine to finalize the current state.

One last thing though: the HTML document has an empty title currently.
There's a commit on top draft 9 on my repo that fixes this; can we
include that without making a new draft?  There's no changes to the body
of the document or to any code.
