Ooops: That is a typo in the SRFI document.  It should say
"implicit-naming syntactic layer."  Sorry about that.

The reference implementation of the explicit-naming layer is, of
course, written using syntax-rules alone.  The implicit-naming layer
is just a layer on top of that that handles only the name generation.
(This bit could be cleaned up significantly---I haven't had the time
to do this properly.)

The argument about the implicit-naming layer is well taken---I'm not a
fan of it myself.  What's there is a compromise of sorts: At least, it
is well-separated from the rest.
