We do have this already.  It is used for the syntax-case macros, for

See scm:eval-transformer and set-module-transformer.

Maybe you can extend to transformer mechanism to be more general so
that multiple transformer steps can be combined?  One of the steps
might be your dot-expansion.

Dot-expansion itself could (and should) then be implemented completely
independent from the rest of Guile.

Actually, this transformer business ought to develop into a proper
framework for compilation, me thinks.
