vectors of homogeneous elements vs strings?

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 4 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 4 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

It seems to me that the proposal as it is does not go far enough.

Would it be more natural to have a "vector of homogeneous elements
tagged with the common type" (something one would maybe call an "array")

and consider the types f32, f64, u*, s* mentioned in the proposal as
of the corresponding vectors to be an extesnion of the Scheme numerical

In fact, Scheme has one such "array" type, namely "string".

Best regards,
