I would say: for each level of the syntactic tower, the expander needs
to keep track of bindings of all identifiers there.

Certainly. What I meant is that when a macro introduces an identifier, it does not know at what syntactic level the identifier will be used in the completely expanded expression. So it has to attach all the possible bindings as part of the representation of the identifier.
