why not 3 different SRFIs

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 11 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 11 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

It seems to me that the three kinds of expressions proposed are
completely orthogonal.  Then why should they all be put in one SRFI?
It forces an implementation to implement all 3 to be able to claim
(cond-expand (srfi-11 'yes)).  An implementor might just implement
case-lambda, and a user might just be interested in case-lambda, but
they can't convey this information to each other through cond-expand.
