Yep, it works, but that's just not what I want!  The suggestion,
stripped down, is:

        Make a new macro for each _use_ of @ovar you would liked.

While I want

        Use a single macro in any place.

So I agree a solution was provided, in the sense that this case is
solvable.  But then?  What do I do if I have another item which wants
to use ovar, but at a different place?

I agree I have a work around.  But it's worse than not using macros at
all.  In other words, I should have to throw away the idea that
primitives/macros are logical (@acronym, @code, @option) and allow me
to structure the output (which is important since at the end I'm
aiming at DocBook), vs. a plain format (@i, @r, @sc).  You're asking
me to throw away the very reasons that makes me like Texinfo :(
