Alex Shinn is the only active member of WG1 who is also an implementer. Here is a preliminary list of things he has to implement as part of R7RS-compliance in Chibi Scheme that he voted against. However, he has said that he sometimes votes for R5RS choices in order to provide a conservative voice.

Shinn: I felt for various reasons that the WG was not taking enough of a conservative stance, and so in many cases voted for R5RS options reflexively, arguing devil's advocate even when I disagreed with it. But I really do hate multiple values.
