:-D Yes, but not only macros, so you'd have to say something like "if
you only need macros (and inline functions) from this library (and
byte-compile your code), you can do (eval-when-compile ...)", which
could be said about a lot of other libraries as well.

But yes, it would at least be less confusing than the current wording,
so if you don't want to remove the note, it would be an improvement I
