Once you get people sharing modules you need a naming hierarchy, unless you want to descend into CPAN naming hell. Extrapolating from the default language, it looks like we can expect: scheme://srfi.schemers.org/srfi-1 scheme://okmij.org/oleg/ssax Yes. Although the original language specification, "scheme://r6rs", looks vaguely like a URI, it's not correctly formed (see "http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt"). If URI-style syntax is used, I think it's important that it conform to the relevant standards, so that standard parsing software knows what to do with it. Additionally, current best practices suggest that URIs of this type should be dereferenceable, as it allows useful content to be placed behind them -- for example, a definition of the syntax in RDF. This makes no difference to most programs, since they just see a unique string, but it can help reasoning engines. So a better choice is something like "http://www.schemers.org/r6rs".
