Since we are proposing a new character based case mapping that
doesn't exist in Unicode, we need to be clear what the semantics are.
Specifically, unlike the R5RS ASCII based mapping
(char=? (char-upcase c) (char-upcase (char-downcase c)))
is no longer a tautology (nor the reverse direction).
(char-ci=? a b)
can no longer be defined as
(char=? (char-upcase a) (char-upcase b))
or equivalently with char-downcase.
(string-map char-upcase s)
is not the same as
