I know.  I note this in the Issues section, stating:

"At the same time it is hoped that a future SRFI will specify a 
mechanism which will allow a portable and efficient implementation of 
collections to exist."

I hope you'll agree that it is ultimately an implementation issue to get 
the dispatch right, but its not that difficult since it is a very simple 
form of dispatch.  Bugs will exist in implementations of anything, they 
can be fixed.
