How to make a macro of articulation marks?

In my Lilypond score I have a bunch of notes I want to highlight in MIDI
without changing the appearance of the printed score, so I have stuff

        a-.-\tag #'midi -\> b-.-\tag #'midi -\> c-.-\tag #'midi -\> d-.-\tag 
#'midi -\>

Stuff tagged #'midi is removed in the printed score with \removeWithTag,
but intact in the MIDI score.

Obviously, this is a pain to type; is there a simple way to factor the
repeated tags into a macro, so that I can e.g. type instead:

        a-.\midiEmph b-.\midiEmph c-.\midiEmph d-.\midiEmph


I tried:

        midiEmph = \tag #'midi -\>
        a-.\midiEmph b-.\midiEmph c-.\midiEmph d-.\midiEmph

but the accent appears to just get dropped silently. What am I doing

megaliths that address all questions by piling on ridiculous internal links in 
forms which are hideously over-complex." -- Simon St. Laurent on xml-dev
