Oh, I see.  matchable is written as portable Scheme, and it "abuses"
match-syntax-error by deliberately passing an invalid number of arguments
to raise an error when it sees something that goes wrong.  This is just a
consequence of having a portable implementation like that.

But that's just my opinion, if you feel strongly about it I would make a
ticket for the egg's author.
