Although I don't have time for Guile development work right now, I
think I can speak for the other developers when saying that your
points are very valid.

Regarding the name space, this is something which should have been
done long ago.  If you want a workaround, note that you can construct
a module with hand-picked bindings:

(define-module (pure-r5rs)
  :use-module (ice-9 r5rs))

Also lookup :select in the Guile NEWS file.
