I'm glad I found it,  the section goes to succinctly list many of the arguments
here and lists links to many macro-driven approaches, that surely
"break grep  and -- contrary to shorthands -- also break M-., ElDoc, completion,
font-lock, etc and many other things. So maybe we should outlaw macros
as they are clearly making all this evil possible.
