   Scheme (and not just Scheme, of course) lets you do CPS
   perspicuously.  That does not mean you have to do it,

You're presenting this from the point of view of a writer of code,
whereas I am taking the point of view of a reader of code.  If Scheme
programmers typically make heavy use of CPS and call/cc stuff, perhaps
because that's how they were taught to program, then as a reader I
don't have the choice you're talking about.
