You are correct to bring this point up, and I understand your concerns.
We could add a post finalization note saying "For portability, please
avoid optional short option arguments."

But even with that, we'd still have some trouble, because of the long
option issues, so "for portability, please avoid required long option
arguments".

It is frustrating, but unfortunately, the srfi behavior is under
specified, so I don't think we can impose a resolution.
