SRFI-105 supports this as {3 + 4 + 5 + 6}, though {3 + 4 * 5 + 6} is
not natively supported (it comes through as (nfx 3 + 4 * 5 + 6), and
it's up to the "nfx" macro, if there is one, to say what that means.

For SRFI-105 to fit nicely into Scheme, () has to work the way it works
in vanilla Scheme; the same is true with sweet-expressions.
