Interesting question.  The master branch of m4.git (which is currently
highly experimental and nowhere near a release) agrees with you, and did
attempt to add named argument support.  But we're a long way off from
ever making it actually useful enough to release; right now, the
development is focused on the stable branch-1.4 branch.
