   [...] chaining higher order functions often becomes highly
   verbose in terms of whitespace, using either unnecessarily
   much space vertically or horizontally, subjectively making
   the code harder to read.

   [...]
   
   What is the proper way to deal with such situations in emacs
   lisp?

If it is a truly subjective matter, you can change the subject.
Personally, sometimes i read source code, type ‘M-x zone RET’,
wait a bit, and then reassert control, to see what exactly has
changed (in my memory / understanding / appreciation).  I don't
think this is "the proper way", but neither is it così improper.
