[Scheme-reports] List of named characters is incomplete

Formal Comment

Relevant draft: r7rs draft 6

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.
