I would vote against that.  We should aim to be closer to Common Lisp (in
behavior and in naming, wrt new or changed names), not closer to Scheme.

Optional font-locking is an appropriate Emacs response to this need.
Scheme naming is not, IMO.  This indication should be optional and off by

Just one opinion.
