The cultural reference can still be there in the manual and the module
has to be there for retro compatibility in any case.

The OTOH is actually very important IMO.  What paul said in his message
is also true for me.  I though that ice-9 what some hack library that
had nothing to do with Guile at first.  Yes yes you eventually
understand when you stumble across the *10 lines out of 800 pages* that
ice-9 is the Guile standard library, but it would be easier if it was
(guile) or (core) or something that is actually meaningful for newcomers
before reading those 10 lines.

For me, module aliases would be the perfect solution to all of this.
