You've already rejected some solutions because they were too radical or
difficult to implement in your rush toward finalization.

We're just following the published guidelines and trying to encourage
you to work out the issues in a more appropriate forum. I don't know
whether there's any real teeth behind the limited draft period, but
there should be.

And really, I don't think it's "finalize now or withdraw." I believe
that the SRFI is likely to fail if you finalize now. It's much more
likely to succeed if you withdraw it and present a good set of concrete
collections instead. As a bonus, that would actually benefit the Scheme
community directly, and it would make SRFI-44 unnecessary.
