Oh, well, if it's withdrawn from slib then there's nothing for guile
to stay compatible with.

Yes, basically, I think.  There's some things missing though, like ~< ~>.

Yep.  I think there's some doubtful treatment of digits in some of the
floating point output, that's the sort of thing that really ought to
be the same as CL.

For guile, yes.  What other schemes are doing is another matter.

srfi-28 and srfi-48 specify versions of format too.  In the latter ~t
is different, and ~h is an addition.
