What if file a.scm defines a macro that file b.scm uses (by refering

This is an important and interesting issue, but I am afraid that if we have to describe a full solution, the SRFI will never be completed. For those who might not be aware of it, one apparently coherent solution is of course well described in Matthew Flatt's Compilable Macros paper (in which he even sketches an implementation of records). For the purposes of this SRFi, however, would people object to just keeping the wording of SRFI-9 for now?
