Nit: the Category: should be ADDITION rather than ENHANCEMENT
The References: section should mention Issue: SHARPSIGN-PLUS-MINUS-PACKAGE.
Between these two issues -- SHARPSIGN-PLUS-MINUS-PACKAGE and this one --
somewhere it should be mentioned that comparison is performed by EQL. Then
the Rationale: section of this issue can be expanded to note that it simply
makes available to the #+ syntax a means of using "features" that would
otherwise not be denotable. More complex "features", such as strings or
cons's still wouldn't be supported in the #+ syntax.
You can also add under the Current Practice: section that Lucid and Symbolics
both implement the proposed behaviour.
