I like all of it. I do have a question: is the term "expansion" also 
used in another case involving templates, like parameter packs? Should 
we try to use a third term for macros in that case, like "substitution" 
(which is also used for templates (think "SFINAE"); maybe there is no 
winning this battle)?
