Type: defect Priority: minor Relevant section of draft: 6.6. Characters
Summary: List of named characters is incomplete
Section 6.6 mentions that #\iota is the Unicode iota character. Yet section 7.1.1 (Lexical structure) does not list this as a valid character name. Do I understand correctly that an implementation may extend in an implementation dependent way the set of named characters given in section 7.1.1. If that is the case, then Section 6.6 should not say that #\iota is the Unicode iota character, since this is an implementation dependent extension.
If the name "iota" is taken from an official list of Unicode character names, it would be useful to have a reference in the R7RS.
