Yes, but for some kinds of software, like programs with custom gui's, sound processing programs, interactive graphical programs, interactivety is exclusively more important than those two. I consider the freeze that the guile's built-in gc cause to be its biggest problem.

Actually, I haven't used guile for other interactive stuff than snd. And snd is huge. It could be that the boehm gc works a lot lot better for really large programs than guile's gc. I'll try to run the gc benchmark program inside snd (with lots of scheme files loaded), it might give some interesting results.
