I agree; it's a holdover from R4RS.

I've made a followup change to remove <variable> from the
formal syntax in favor of <identifier>, since you have
removed the definition of <variable> (which in turn depends
on the definition of <syntactic keyword>).
Variables and syntactic keywords have been *syntactically* the
same since R5RS anyway.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
