I don't see any need for convincing someone about that.  Making such
changes is routine maintenance that doesn't need any approval.  The
main problem is to find a volunteer for this huge job.

The sheer number of defines is not the problem.  The problem is that
some or maybe even most of them don't clearly tell what they mean.  It
is this problem that IMO we should work on, not just on removing
defines or lumping unrelated features into a single OS-dependent
define.
