My use case for macro extension is as follows: a third party provides a

certain slots in my macro. I need my macro to offer all of the slots

That remains the case with the proposed change.
Ok. It takes a while to twist my brain back into a mode that
understands this stuff. Your solution adds capabilities without taking
any away. +1.
Perhaps the define-macro/use-macro combination should be replaced with
something like define-macro/extends-macro (and the former once more
disallowed), and keep the change from the proposed patch.
Now that I see this better, I'll retract my suggestion to change the
syntax. I think it works fine as-is. You can re-introduce the
suggestion as your own, if you like. ;-)
Where is the proposed patch?
