    Well, that's only true if the change in the reader only applies to dolist.
    If it applies more generally, it may conflate distinct symbols used in
    *other* macros.

Perhaps we are thinking of different kinds of change.
What I have in mind would only avoid splitting of one symbol
(as inserted in macro expansions) into multiple symbols
in the process of writing the compiled code into a file and reading it again.
That can't do any harm.
