FWIW, I routinely use quasiquote, for the reason you describe.  The 
only real problem with this approach is that it may confuse those 
reading your code:  "Gee, why'd he use a quasiquote here?"

For similar reasons, I generally use "let*" rather than "let".  How 
many times have you gone back to change a "let" into a "let*"?
