I think this gives an inaccurate impression.  It is apparently based on
the following statement by Ludovic Courtès in 2007:

   I cannot speak for all GNU Guile developers.  Nevertheless,                                                                             
   it appears to be unlikely that Guile will support R6RS                                                                                  
   anytime soon given that (i) we probably lack the resources

   interested in it (I, for one, do not consider it a high                                                                                 

Here he merely made a guess about what would happen.  Since then, quite
a lot of work has gone into improving Guile's support for R6RS, and the
maintainers have welcomed those improvements.
