Yeah, I have read this rationale before. :-)

My question was somehow directed to Ludo:

        What is the rationale?  Being able to know directly at the location when
        it is a plain function or a special form?

Sorry for having been unclear.

And I do not see a big difference between,

          (gexp->derivation "check-deb-pack"
            (with-imported-modules '((guix build utils))


          (gexp->derivation "check-deb-pack"
                            (with-imported-modules '((guix build utils))

It is somehow personal cosmetic and I am sometimes poor person about
cosmetic. ;-)

Well, from my point of view, based on consistency with current
practises, I would be inclined to keep the status quo: special rule for
special form.
