Re: "Its the little things that count. Hundreds of 'em." -- Cliff Shaw

If you are worried about non-binding appendices being interpreted as binding, then
you could always prefix the non-binding forms with (say) NB-<mumble>.  One could
also state (in small print) that some implementations may provide equivalent
forms that omit the NB prefix but this is NOT portable.

Future iterations could increment this prefix... say since the first standard is
tied to Revised^4 Scheme, maybe use NB4-<mumble>.

If the appendix always says NB4-<mumble> and NEVER says just <mumble> anywhere
then nobody can grumble if you later redefine <mumble>.

That's my two cents.					~Ziggy
