[racket] R7RS and Racket in the (far) future

Da Gamer: 

We view Racket as a member of the Lisp family of languages that lives at the same level as Clojure, Common Lisp, Allegro Lisp and Franz Lisp as well as the Scheme branch of the family (with its dialects such as Chez, Larceny (Common and Otherwise), Scheme 48, Scheme 84, and 70 or so more). While Racket obviously inherits many traits from Scheme and while we are obviously grateful to the Scheme branch of the family for its inspiration, Racket is NOT Scheme and we will continue to develop the language as we see fit. 

Thanks for the question -- Matthias
