I hope the committee took into account that for systems like Racket and Chez 
that are based on a native psyntax-type macro implementation, providing ER 
macros would adversely affect the complexity class of such macros, because in 
these systems an extra code walk is necessary to fully unwrap each input to the 
ER transformer.
