I have not changed or modified core stuff for the module. I think it is safe and may be considered
for backporting to 2.4, as well as the "Warning" directive added some time ago.

Forwarding to docs for the few folks that pay more attention there than here.

Lets put something in conf/extras with an as-simple-as-possible example in it, and a pointer
to the docs.

I envision something, eventually, along the lines of the Rewrite recipe-style docs with howtos
for various scenarios. I haven't yet looked through the docs that are already provided, but
will do so this week and work on integrating it into the rest of the docs where it is relevant.
I expect that the vhost section is an obvious entry point, as that's where I see mod_macro
used most extensively in the wild.
