Thanks for the status summary.  That's great.

As for the reference implementation, it really isn't
optional.  If you can get a final draft out for discussion
with the changes you mentioned above, I'm happy to have the
SRFI sit in draft status for a while until you, Will, or a
volunteer gets around to bringing it up to date.
