Guile's current behaviour does interfere with trying to package srfi 99.
According to

  All implementations of SRFI 99 must provide the following libraries:

     (srfi :99)                       ; alias for (srfi :99 records)
     (srfi :99 records)               ; composite of the next three
     (srfi :99 records procedural)
     (srfi :99 records inspection)
     (srfi :99 records syntactic)

Currently, guile's behaviour, AIUI, is to just drop the part after the
(srfi :99), which would mean you couldn't just import the last
three. Supporting srfi 99 in its fullness will still require a change in
