So the formal stuff in section 7 is non-normative, and the informal stuff
in sections 1-6 is normative?  I find that surprising, though not absolutely
astonishing.  In particular, that means that a mismatch between the number
of actual and formal parameters is allowed, as is + applied to a non-number
and CAR to a non-pair?  These things are only forbidden in 7.2.
