No.  Define-generic is not exported.

Are the module systems in use uniformly able to overcome
this, or is this a serious issue?

I don't think it is serious.  In the absence of a module system,
you should probably follow some alternative naming convention.  The
exposed interface should be clear from the specification and the two module-based syntax-case implementations.
