I now understand what my confusion was.  The syntax bindings in the
letrec-syntaxes+values may be needed to expand the (unexpanded) code
left because of the stop list.  

It happens that the application I'm using local-expand for only has #%
top in the stop list, and so I was surprised to see letrec-syntaxes
+values there.  But I can just work around that.
