   The discussion seems to have wandered into a tangent about

The argument I made is that it should be _possible_ to convert a
keyboard macro into a Lisp function.  Hence if some command needs to
printed to *Messages* during macro execution, then it should be
possible to have that command print the same message from Lisp.
Hence if printing the message from Lisp _by default_ is undesirable in
such a situation, one needs to use an argument, as explained in
`(elisp)Interactive Call'.

Hence the current behavior of interactive-p is correct.
