When I say that requiring only the fixnum/flonum foundation is an attractive option for R6RS, second only to requiring the full tower, I certainly do not mean to imply that systems would be forbidden to support numbers that are neither fixnum nor flonum. In particular, I do not mean to suggest dropping the part of R5RS section 6.2.3 I quoted above.
