   So it seems perfectly reasonable to specify that SRFI 42 qualifier names 
   are matched based on symbolic equality and that the SRFI 42 library does 
   not export bindings for qualifier names.

If there are really *no* words in the SRFI about the comparison of
names (I haven't read through it carefully enough to say), then this
would be a reasonable provisional workaround for this instance of the
problem.  That leaves the problem in SYNTAX-RULES, however, of failing
to distinguish the two kinds of name comparison, which matters for
portable programs.
