So what's wrong with this one?

 (lambda ()
    `("bar" (TeX-arg-key-val
             ,(lambda ()
               (append (func1-returning-keyval-alist)

That's again caught by the functionp case and can simply be funcalled.
I'd rather prefer to keep the DSL simple, e.g., TeX-arg-key-val
arguments can either be a literal alist, a function of no args
delivering an alist, or a symbol denoting an alist variable (checked in
that order).  That is, I wouldn't even distinguish functions from
variables syntactically but prefer functions in general, e.g.,

  (TeX-arg-key-val (LaTeX-enumitem-key-val-options))

would become

  (TeX-arg-key-val LaTeX-enumitem-key-val-options)

where LaTeX-enumitem-key-val-options is funcalled and takes precedence
of the variable of the same name.

Sorry, I know we had a discussion back then where I haven't been
explicit enough or haven't had an informed opinion yet. :-(
