Indeed! I'd be very happy if proposals from Scheme Review are fed into
SRFI where appropriate.

This means people who only have time for late-stage work can subscribe
only to SRFI, and people who want to explore can subscribe to both.

I'd expect there to be a lot of overlap between the people who
contribute to each. It's certainly not any kind of competition.

Agreed on all counts.
