While I prefer writing Scribble syntax to the XML syntax in SRFI
108/109, you're doing something different from Scribble, namely
embedding a syntax into Scheme rather than presenting an alternative.
For this, #& seems more in line with other parts of Scheme, and less
confusing for Scribble afficionados.
