You're building programmatically your document. I don't believe it
belongs to "very simple" tasks.

I think something along the following lines should work.

  #+NAME: mylist
  #+BEGIN_SRC org :results raw :exports none
  - [ ] foo 
  - [ ] bar 

  #+CALL: mylist() :results raw

  #+CALL: mylist() :results raw

As you noticed already, you are not using a macro. Why would it be in
macro replacement?
