I think info:org#Macro%20replacement should be refined.  I really don't
understand what this node is talking about.  It says:

  You can define text snippets with
     #+MACRO: name   replacement text $1, $2 are arguments

What does "$1", "$2" mean here?  It isn't mentioned before, and I only
know what it means in the spreadsheet.  And it doesn't look like a
C/Lisp/m4/TeX macro.

$1 and $2 are placeholders for macro arguments. $1 will be replaced by
the first argument and $2 by the second one.

You can provide a new phrasing for the section and we'll consider adding
it to the manual.
