So what is happening is that people are voting for more rather than less, as

For the record, I'm extremely leery of the more-is-better approach.
We seem to be adding a large number of very large APIs, which seems
to be contrary to the Scheme ideal of small well-chosen primitives
that work synergistic well together.  People were unhappy with R6RS
because of its size and that so much of it was invention rather than
codifying existing practice.  R7RS-large is the same - but much more so.
