Because Lisp is much more than its syntax, what we'll get instead is
(surprise!) "lisp flavoured erlang" which could decide to have the syntax
for macro names start with a ?, for example, making it clear what they are.
I don't say it should, just that it is possible to enforce this kind of
rule, to help reading the code.
