Re: unbroken naming conventions

Is it important to the implementors that the naming convention avoid such characters?

No. Implementations are supposed to handle all valid library names (i.e., anything that's a list of symbols, whatever their content might be). It might be confusing for the users though as there is no "standard" library-name->file- name mapping. (ikarus uses "srfi/%3a1.sls" for srfi 1 while mzscheme uses srfi/% 3A1.sls, note the case difference which might just be an artifact of the case of the string returned by (number->string (char->integer #\:) 16) under the two implementations)
