    However, it seems to me that we are now coming up with rather
    convoluted schemes in which scoping become far from obvious,

The scoping in my proposal is quite natural.  A variable is bound
where it appears, and the scope ends at the end of the cond-form.

I agree that this is not an important feature.
I am not arguing in favor of it.
However, if such a feature is to be considered,
it should be a clean and simple one.
