Discuss yes, define no:
We really only talk about the behavior of the *script interpreters*
rather than the REPL or the "usual" behavior of the underlying Scheme
implementation. (There may not even *be* a REPL.) Moreover, the
interactive environment of some Scheme implementations doesn't work
via the LOAD procedure, but rather via an extralinguistic mechanism (a
GUI or a REPL escape as in Scheme 48). I'd like to add something akin
to this, though:
Scheme implementations with an interactive development environment
which support SRFI 22 are encouraged to also support loading Scheme
scripts into that environment.

No problems. It certainly hasn't kept others from bashing the draft
