Because that messes up Emacs's C mode indentation.

I agree that that's an Emacs bug - as opposed to a bug with the code
as it was - but in the end I thought "hey, this is discouraged code,
so probably no one will ever touch it again, so does it really matter
whether we keep those DEFFROM and DEFTO macros or not?"

I spent a little time first, looking for a way of customizing
C mode to make it think that DEFFROM and DEFTO are always top-level;
but couldn't find one.
