This would be perfectly reasonable. As one of the srfi-editors, let me point out that there is a policy already in place for making SRFIs deprecated. SRFI-24 (or whatever) would be marked as superceding SRFI-1 during the discussion period, and as soon as SRFI-24 was marked final, SRFI-1 would be marked deprecated. ../Dave
