For function application the function definition could be highlighted too in a different color. The highlighting would require some creativity for forms like cond (maybe de-highlight clauses as they're eliminated?), but it would be a more incremental approach than forcing the stepper UI into the definitions window.

This might be awesome, or it might be confusing; I can imagine students seeing the definitions window jumping around and at a minimum being distracted, or even think that the definitions were changing. I guess I'd want to see it, first.
