There are advantages either direction.  I agree with you on the advantage of 
#!curly-infix, which was an alternative recommendation.  However, John Cowan 
strongly argues that the advantage of #!srfi-105 is that it tells you "where to 
go for more information", as well as being more general.

True.  We use .sscm for "sweet-scheme", for example.
