Well, keyword arguments are very new in PLT Scheme; I don't know if
other Schemes have them at all.  The R6RS mostly specifies features
that were present in many Scheme implementations at the time of its
writing.  Heck, we haven't even been using keywords in Scheme long
enough to be sure we've "got them right", so it's not necessarily time
to start nailing them down formally yet.
