I think it is fair to use the scheme-script name for scripting that doesn’t assume a specific version of Scheme.  A cond-expand could be used in the script (and probably has to for short-term portability) to support both R7RS and R6RS (and R5RS).  There could be a specific scheme-r6rs for scripts that are specific to R6RS (SRFI 22 had suggested the name scheme-rNrs such as scheme-r4rs and scheme-r5rs).
