For analogy with R5RS, this would make sense, and I was thinking about
including it when I wrote the draft.  However, by leaving it out, I
acknowledged the fact, that I never ever used BYTE-VECTOR-FILL! (or
some equivalent) in my own code---and I did want to keep the SRFI

Your experience seems to differ.  Could you provide a couple of
examples to help convince me?
