The draft has little to offer the working programmer over R6RS.
This is probably true, if application programmers are meant. Library programmers, however, will be able to achieve more widely portable libraries if R7RS-small is adopted by the implementations that did not adopt R6RS, as adding R7RS-small support to an R6RS implementation is extremely straightforward. The WG often had the concerns of library programmers in mind while working on the draft.
The WG decided by unanimous consent to take no action on this ticket.
