Agreed. However, I do get the impression that he has too much of an
emotional investment or that he doesn't get the point of the withdrawal

Agreed. This is a design document, not an implementation, and the SRFI
FAQ makes it pretty clear that this is not the place for design

Actually, as written, SRFI-44 isn't even a design document for Scheme

removed from an actual implementation.
