This discussion was not about whether to use a macro or a function, it
is about how to supply a doc string for a particular mouse click.  I
suggested to use a function as a means to that end, but I won't object
to a different solution as long as there's a meaningful string that
"C-h c" and "C-h k" can display for that click.

We had in the past complaints about mouse gestures for which Help
commands displayed technobabble understandable only by ELisp gurus.
We fixed those bindings by using functions.  Why add more causes for
users to complain about?
