I think the point is that Racket should not be thought of as a "Scheme
variant."  It follows its own rules and has its own goals and is not
beholden to RnRS in any way.  As such, it is able to go in directions that
RnRS can't.   As Matthias said, it is better to think of Racket as a
separate language in the Lisp/Scheme family rather than an implementation
of Scheme per se.
