What do you mean?  Here ‘x’ leads to a newly introduced binding.

Likewise, the code below doesn’t introduce bindings non-hygienic
bindings, and is non-ambiguous:

  (macroexpand '(let-syntax ((f (lambda (s)
                                  (syntax-case s ()
                                    ((_ x y)
                                     #`(let ((p x))
                                         (+ p #,(identity #'y))))))))
                  (f 1 2)))

  => #<tree-il (let (p) (p-28239) ((const 1)) (apply (toplevel +) (lexical p 
p-28239) (const 2)))>
