If I don't come up with an example right now, it doesn't mean that it's not
useful, only that I don't have an example.

You're proposing a change to existing behavior, and I fail to see a compelling
enough reason for that change. Not only is the new behavior not compelling to
me yet, but the safety of the change (because it *does* change how existing
macros behave) is definitely not compelling enough.

Asking me to defend why the status quo shouldn't be changed has nothing to do
with whether your suggested feature should become the new default.
