Note that according to the R5RS, identifiers are not case sensitive, so
e.g. 'Radix' is no less correct than 'radix'.  In that context, it does
not make sense to say "the identifier starts with a lowercase letter".
Also, as Andy noted elsewhere, the R5RS is an historical document.

I would advocate reverting the R5RS portion of this patch.

The rest of the patch looks great, many thanks! :)
