[plt-scheme] bytes vs u8vector

How come SRFI-4/66 u8vectors are a distinct data type from byte strings? 
This means that to make an interface compatible with other
implementations that support the SRFIs, one has to make it less
convenient to use in mzscheme, since byte strings are much better
integrated with the system than u8vectors. Is there some FFI issue?
