The REMOVE in the middle of a function name has by convention in past SRFIs indicated a predicate argument, while DELETE indicates a simple value deletion. This, I believe, should be reflected in ITERATOR-REMOVE-VALUE!, as it already isreflected in *-DELETE!. I therefore propose to change it to ITERATOR-DELETE-VALUE!.
Er, and not just ITERATOR-(REMOVE->DELETE)-VALUE! -- also for things like
*-REMOVE!, *-REMOVE-ALL!, et cetera.
