I would slightly prefer `(Revised^7) Report on the {Core,Extended} Scheme Language', because (a) they sound slightly more euphonious (to my tin ear), and (b) calling WG2 the `Extended Scheme Language' seems more in harmony with the WG2 charter (`Working group 2 will develop specifications, documents, and proofs of practical implementability for a language that embodies the essential character of Scheme...'). WG2's product can be `Extended Scheme' even if it specifies a set of libraries.

Good proposal, Thanks for fixing my wordings.
