In particular, there is no reason not to depend on any egg that implements
a SRFI or other external standard, since the interface is fixed.
(Of course, if you inadvertently depend on a buggy implementation of some
SRFI, you're going to be screwed when the bug gets fixed, but there's
no getting away from that problem; the same is true of the Chicken core
itself, which evolves far faster than any one egg.)
