I don't believe so.  I think that the formatting you get with display
and write are sufficient for Basic format strings.  Remember that with
this SRFI, you can format reals using the RnRS math operations and
several instances of the display or write escape sequences.  I do agree
that if there is ever an Advanced format strings SRFI that such things
should be included.

The goal of this SRFI is primarily to specify the lowest common denominator
of what format does on most Scheme systems.
