I mentioned this before but it seems to have gotten lost: I recommend
that [foo bar] in c-expressions be treated as ($bracket-list$ foo bar)

which is the only Scheme in my test suite to treat square brackets in
this way. ...

I'm not sure I understand.  I intentionally didn't discuss unprefixed [...], so that people can do what they want; curly-infix doesn't define anything for the unprefixed case.  Does Kawa actually map x[foo bar] to ($bracket-list$ x foo bar)?

No. Kawa maps:
[foo bar] to ($bracket-list$ foo bar)
x[foo bar] to ($bracket-apply$ x foo bar)
