I think that's an interesting point and has been brought up before on
this list: what's the official stance on SRFIs? On the documentation
page they are near the bottom in "Miscellaneous libraries".

If their use is encouraged, maybe doc pages should have a pointer in the
margin similar to how reference entries point to guide entries. For
example, the string section in the reference could point to SRFI-13.
