While that's true in general, I think some exceptions are OK. E.g., it's OK if emacs-module.c assumes that ASIZE is a simple access function or macro that doesn't throw signals. If we actually changed ASIZE to throw signals, there's a boatload of other code we'd need to change as well, and changing emacs-module.c wouldn't add much more to the maintenance burden.
