I don't know what exactly characterizes your notions of "baselanguage" and "library."

If "base language" means "what's needed to build the other stuff," then that would clearly mean that the flonumsneed to be in it.

If you mean "library" means something that an implementation may or may not support, then see the rationale of the SRFI why that wouldn't be a good idea.

If you think that SRFI 77 should really be made available in R6RS as a set of library modules rather than just one big blob for organizational reasons, then I fully agree with you---we just didn't have the methodology to do it when we wrote the draft. I'm hoping we might have it once we get to putting stuff into R6RS.
