As long as we are considering the issues politically rather than
technically, how would you feel about the following compromises?

   * let's add "values" and "with-values" (or "apply-values") and
     change the name of the so-called "named let" to "recur".

   * let's add "accepts?" and remove the requirement that Scheme
     be case insensitive.

These may be considered together or separately, as you desire.
