In which sense is SRFI-19 "optional"?  (It shouldn't.)

I don't really see the point in having standardized libraries if one
ignores its data structures, using an ad-hoc representation instead.
"Supporting" a SRFI should mean more than just copying the reference
implementation into some place into the distribution and leaving it
